Description of problem:
CD passed the TEST
After starting the graphical installer, it gives the error:
"function probe_partition_for_geom() failed". I kept on clicking
IGNORE, which lead to other screans each time.
After selecting the timezone, software packages [custom] and when it
is started to copy the files from the CD, it gave an exception & hang
I was installing on Pentium-II 400 MHz. The hard drive had around 6 GB.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
function probe_partition_for_geom() failed
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start graphical installation
2.The "function probe_partition_for_geom() failed" error msg will be
displayed in couple of screens
Actual Results: gives exception and hangs
Expected Results: Start to copy files from CD
I think, may be this is the problem of Hard drive or bad CD [even
though the CD "passed" the test]
In error it said the head size is < 256 with
"function probe_partition_for_geom() failed" this message
I had chosen the language of installation as "Tamil(India)"
