Comment 1 Michael Fulbright 2000-08-08 12:26:01 EDT
What type of install (ftp, http, cdrom, etc)?

Did you do a workstation, server, or custom install?
Comment 2 Sterling 2000-08-08 12:35:34 EDT
I was using an FTP install from an internal LAN server.
Type was Workstation install, then GNOME and Games.
Comment 3 Sterling 2000-08-08 17:45:12 EDT
Have tried several more attempts using custom install with and without
installing X.
I should mention that this box has had RH6.0 and 6.2 installed before with no
problems.

In all cases the install appears to be proceeding normaly, packages are
installing and
then at some point (never the same package) it give's the error screen saying to
contact
bugzilla or simply states that install exited abnormally and eventually says
safe to reboot.

The only other time I got it to save the output seems incomplete;

Traceback (innermost last):
  File "/usr/bin/anaconda.real", line 426, in ?
    intf.run(todo, test = test)
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0//usr/lib/anaconda/text.py", line 1022, in run
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0//usr/lib/anaconda/text.py", line 504, in __call__

instCallback
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0//usr/lib/anaconda/urlinstall.py", line 38, in
getFi

I'll continue to try several more things to see if it makes a difference but am
quickly running out of ideas.
Comment 4 Michael Fulbright 2000-08-09 11:34:05 EDT
I've seen this problem and fixed it yesterday - it seems if there was a glitch
in the ftp transfers the installer was crashing as you saw.

Please try again when the beta is refreshed.
Comment 5 Sterling 2000-08-09 18:32:56 EDT
I was able to get it to install by putting on a completly blank hard drive, no other partitions.  Tried several times and it worked fine.
I made more room on the other hard drive and it failed both hard drive and FTP installs, even though it has 2.5 Gig.

Will try again latter when the installer updates.
