Description lars 2000-08-24 16:02:29 EDT
Installing RH beta "pinstripe" on a vmware system, the installer dies 
sometime while installing files with the following error:

  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0//usr/lib/anaconda/urlinstall.py", line 47, 
in getFilename
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0//usr/lib/anaconda/log.py", line 23, in 
  TypeError: illegal argument type for built-in operation

This was using the "bootnet.img" floppy with an ftp based install against 
the mirror at rpmfind.net.
Comment 1 Michael Fulbright 2000-08-29 12:43:03 EDT
vmware is not a supported target for the installer.
Comment 2 lars 2000-08-29 12:52:24 EDT
From the point of view of the installer, vmware is just another i386 platform, 
which *is* supported.  Tracebacks that occur here are likely to occur 
elsewhere, and I'd expect that you'd want to fix them.
