Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 15890
Installation fails after "read package information"
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:57 EDT
I installed RedHat Linux 6.2 to notebook Dell Latitude CpxJ. It is text
installation from CD-ROM to a existing DOS partition. After "read package
information" installation fail.
Output from anaconda:
Traceback (innermost last):
File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 324, in ?
intf.run (todo, test = test)
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/text.py", line
1165 in run
rc = apply (step , step )
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/text.py", line 702, in __call__
if todo.doInstall (),
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/todo.py", line 1110, in doInstall
This problem is after boot from floppy disk too.
Did you try to mount any other filesystems than the '/' mount point on the FAT
Yes. I did try to mount to Linux Native file system but installation fail too.
The installation failed in the notebook but in the desktop no problem. I'd like
to installation to the FAT partition. In the notebook is Windows 2000 operating
Try an install where all you do is assign '/' to a FAT filesystem.
Don't try to also assign mount points to ext2 file systems.
I would also recommend removing any Linux swap partitions as well.
Please reopen if this continues to be a problem.
