Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 13638
Install from FTP via PCMCIA network card crashes
Last modified: 2005-10-31 17:00:50 EST
When attempting to install RedHat 6.2 via FTP over a PCMCIA network card,
the installation crashes.
I'm attempting to install it on a Dell Latitude XP 4100C (486DX4/100),
with a 3COM 3C589D PCMCIA network card.
I've booted with the PCMCIA boot image (pcmcia-20000407.img), and am also
using the Anaconda updates (update-disk-20000419.img).
I've setup a Serv-U FTP server on another PC, and have made the RedHat 6.2
CD available to anonymous users.
When booting with the PCMCIA image, I specify a static IP address, and it
successfully connects to my FTP server and downloads the first image off
the CD (\RedHat\base\netstg2.img).
The install then crashes with the following message:
error 2 reading header: Success
cpio failed on (null): (internal)
Traceback (innermost last):
File "/usr/bin/anaconda.real", line 31, in ?
ImportError: No module named gettext_rh
install exited abnormally
Attempting an identical installation with RedHat 6.0 on the same PC worked
fine, so it definitely appears to be a problem with the RedHat 6.2
Does Red Hat Linux 7 fare any better?
Closing due to inactivity.
