Description of problem:
I am trying to install Fedora Core 2 over the top of Red Hat linux ver
9 and keep getting an error that the linuxconf file does not exist or
can not be found. The install script than bombs out.
What can I do?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start the install from the install CD for fedora
Actual Results: The fedora install terminates
Expected Results: Red Hat linux ver 9 should have been upgraded to
Fedora Core 2
Can you please provide the exact error you receieved?
I get the following WARNIG when Fedora is going through the setup
process: Unable to align the partition properly. This probably means
another partitioning tool generated an incorreect partition table,
because it didn't have the correct BIOS geometry. It is safe to
ignore, but may cause (fixable) problems with some boot loaders.
(NOTE: I use the Boot Magic version 8 boot loader on my MBR which
loads GRUB from the Red Hat Linux partion to start Linux. Red Hat
Linux starts and runs fine)
I then get the following error which stops the install process:
"error reading information on service linuxconf: no such file or
directory. install exited abnormally sending termination signals."
This should be fixed for FC3.
