More installer tracebacks...
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:58 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,
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.
vmware is not a supported target for the installer.
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.
