Description acousti-net 2000-07-04 22:14:15 EDT
I start the installation with a boot disk, then install from /hda2 
to /hdb1, and just after i enter authentication configurations, the 
package installation starts but i get some errors:

Traceback (innermost last):

file  "/usr/bin/anaconda.real", line 342, in ?
intf.run(todo, test = test)

file "/usr/lib/anaconda/text.py", line 1165, in run
rc = apply (step[1](),step[2])

file "/usr/lib/ananconda/text.py", line 584, in __call__

file "/usr/lib/anaconda/todo.py", line 467, in getCompsList

Was the partition you were installing from also mounted in your /etc/fstab of
the system you were upgrading?
Comment 2 acousti-net 2000-07-05 19:24:08 EDT
first of all, i wasn't upgrading my system, i was installing fresh. During the 
installation i ran disk druid and mounted /windows which is /dev/hda2, 
also /dev/hda2 is the place where you can find the installation files.

about the /etc/fstab part, i'm really not sure cause i never had the chance to 
finish the install and view the file
Comment 3 Brock Organ 2000-07-13 15:16:54 EDT
hmmm ... I was able to perform a hard drive install from a vfat source partition
as you described above (mounted in ddruid too) without a problem in our test lab

Often it appears in hard drive install reports that the hard drive image was not
copied cleanly/reliably to the source partition ... you may want to try
installing after a recopy ... please feel free to reopen this if you have
additional information and/or trouble with the recopy ...

Thanks for your report!
