I'm sorry parts of the "trace dump" are in Swedish. The installer stop's
just before start of upgrade. This is the message, saved to floppy:

Comment 1 Michael Fulbright 2000-10-02 18:16:50 EDT
Does /tmp happen to be a symlink on the system you are upgrading?
Comment 2 Need Real Name 2000-10-04 12:24:55 EDT
Sorry for my late reply.

Yes, /tmp is a symlink.

I'll will alter it to an ordinary directory

Comment 3 Need Real Name 2000-10-04 13:32:33 EDT
With /tmp as an ordinary directory all worked fine.

Comment 4 Michael Fulbright 2000-10-06 17:42:58 EDT
We have a RFE to handle this better in the future, linking to it.
