Description lars 2000-06-28 03:57:52 UTC
I'm trying to install beta2 from CD (the CDs that shipped from RedHat), and
using either the graphical installer or the text-mode installer I run into
a traceback just before package installation starts:

Traceback (innermost last):
  File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 423, in ?
    intf.run(todo, test = test)
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/text.py", line 1002, in run
    rc = apply (step[1](), step[2])
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/text.py", line 487, in __call__
    if todo.doInstall ():
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/todo.py", line 1321, in doInstall
    self.fstab.makeFilesystems ()
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/fstab.py", line 534, in makeFilesystems
    for label in self.readLabels(labelSkipList).values():
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/fstab.py", line 478, in readLabels
NameError: next

On this system there is one floppy, no IDE disks, and the following SCSI

  sda is a 1GB hard disk,
  sdb is a zip drive (no disk in drive),
  and there is a SCSI CDROM.

The install target is sda, and the partition map looks like this:

sda1 * 1 754 772080 83 Linux
sda2   755 1010 262144 5 Extended
sda5   755 1010 262128 82 Linux swap

This partition table was created using Disk Druid.
