Description Giuseppe Raimondi 2000-08-31 10:51:59 EDT
I was trying an installation (text expert) and had to change the partition
sizes, so I went back to disk druid to do it and when I arrived again at
the installation of the packages the installer gave me a warning, saying:
"the kernel is unable to read your new partitioning information, probably
because you modified extended partitions.....etc" also stating this is not
critical and just need to reboot. I only could select ok and then I had a
message "excepton occurred"
Traceback (innermost last) File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line ...
intf.run(todo, test = test)
and so on
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/todo.py", line ..., in doInstall
self.fstab.savePartitions ()
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/fstab.py", line ..., in savePartitions
self.druid.save ()
name error: sys

I had the same with the 6.2 installer, apart from the nice error message
