Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 12305
can't install RedHat 6.2 - python crash
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:56 EDT
I am trying to upgrade 6.1 to 6.2, mainly to install GNOME.
I am using the anaconda updated install diskettes. In the
early stages of the install, I get a popup warning that /tmp/sdb
was not configured. Then at the screen when I can choose components to
upgrade, I do not choose, so that everything will be installed.
I get a message that python crashed - see the GNOME applications
crash page (they told me to submit this here), and asked me if I
would like to submit a bug report. Whether I say yes or no, the
install hangs here. Specifically, the python crash is error 23,
due to a segmentation fault.
what kind of hardware? Does this happen under Red Hat Linux 7?
Well, it took you six months to answer me, so I waited six months
to answer you. The problem, which I solved by myself, was that
/tmp was too small to accomodate the files for the upgrade. I
tried to work around it, to no avail. So I backed up the system,
wiped it, repartitioned the disk, and installed 6.2
