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(),step)
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?
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
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!
