Can you provide the complete traceback you received?
Comment 2 redhat admin 2004-10-14 16:12:07 EDT
That was it I !

I did not get any further info.

BTW - I also tried 'text' mode and it crashed but there was no error,
it was just after starting anaconda and it send 'installer aborting'
and rebooted.
Comment 3 redhat admin 2004-10-15 05:04:36 EDT
Something that may be significant is that the media I used to burn the
ISO image too is not the best quality.

I have burned about 8 (out of 25) and every one failed to read in
other players etc.

I will test this evening with A-Grade media and ensure that I'm not
wasting your time.
Comment 4 Jeremy Katz 2004-10-19 17:22:01 EDT
Did things work better with the better quality media?
Comment 5 redhat admin 2004-10-20 05:41:54 EDT

I managed to do an 'upgrade' with i386 DVD but the 'install' crashed.
This was on A-grade media.

Not sure whats going on.

Does booting with 'linux ide=nodma' help?
Comment 7 Jeremy Katz 2005-09-21 15:01:39 EDT
