Description Gong 2000-09-06 06:08:50 UTC
I tarred and gzipped all files under /redhat-6.2/i386 using ftp, unzip, untar it under winzip7 and write everything to a cdr using juliet format.  I 
used the autoboot to stall installation, it went through all the hardware initiation procedures but stop saying "fail to read module-info" and kick 
me out.
It was tried under different machines and same thing happens.
I check the module-info file, I can read it without problem.
Again I unzipping everything to the harddrive, the message do not come again but after I have done through all options to the package analysis 
part, it said there was an error and give out a list of errors in python files, the series of errors point to is comps.py in 
RedHat\instimage\usr\lib\anaconda, reading 
line 286	    raise TypeError, "comp file version 3 or 4 expected"
I check the comp file, "4" is at the foremost line.
One thing to note.  
When unziping the tar. there is a gtk.py of 100k and a GTK.py of 7k under RedHat\instimage\usr\lib\python1.5\site-packages, I looked into the 
100k file and decide to adapte the other in it's original name as they cannot exist under ms enviorment. The other I rename it to gtk1.py.
Is is relevant to my failure? is there any work around?
