Description foneill 2000-06-12 18:16:41 UTC
This is what I see in text-mode:

Exception in thread Thread-3:
Traceback (innermost last)

   File "/usr/lib/python1.5/threading.py", line 376, in __bootstrap 
   File "/usr/lib/anaconda/iw/progress.py", line 16, in run rc = 
   File "/usr/lib/anaconda/todo.py", line 1252, in doInstall 
self.writeConfiguration ()
   File "/usr/lib/anaconda/todo.py", line 1065, in writeConfiguration 
self.writeNetworkConfig ()
   File "/usr/lib/anaconda/todo.py", line 531, in writeNetworkConfig ip = 
   File "/usr/lib/anaconda/todo.py", line 140, in lookupHostname 
self.primaryNS = isys.pumpNetDevice(dev.get('device'))
   File "/usr/lib/anaconda/isys.py", line 241, in pumpNetDevice return 

SystemError: (17, 'File exists')

And in another console window, I get:

* copying /mnt/sysimage/lib/modules/2.2.14-5.0smp/percraid.o 
to /mnt/sysimage/lib/modulews/2.2.14-50smp/scsi/percraid.o
* copying /mnt/sysimage/lib/modules/2.2.14-5.0/percraid.o 
to /mnt/sysimage/lib/modules/2.2.14-5.0/scsi/percraid.o
*self.network.hostname = test.[my domain name]

Looks like we quit after the hostname.  In another console window, I see:

... [we were able to find the DHCP server, get lease, ip, netmask, 
gateway, dns servers, broadcast address, network address]

<7>  eth2: 0 multicast blocks dropped.

Okay, and now for the details on the hardware.  The box is a Dell 
PowerEdge 2400, with a Perc 2/si RAID card, one built-in ethernet card on 
the motherboard, and 2 additional Intel Pro 100 nics.  I did the 'expert' 
install and fed the installer the appropriate percraid drivers, because 
6.2 does not have the drivers for this RAID controller.  I also did select 
the Intel Pro 100 drivers before proceeding with the installation.  So the 
right drivers are there, me thinks...

This problem is fixed in the 6.2 installer update disk available from the
