Description Need Real Name 2000-10-02 10:23:05 EDT
I tried install RH7 (Deluxe) using custom w/install indivisual packages.
Adding (or subtracting) a single package results in the failure mentioned
in previous bug reports on anaconda.  If I just select packages (e.g. Emacs
and/or Utilities) without selecting indivisual packages, then it goes
through fine.

Which previous bug reports are you referring too?

We need more information in order to try and reproduce your bug.
Comment 2 Need Real Name 2000-10-03 14:22:50 EDT
For example, if I add the package Inti during a custom install (select 
indivisual packages), then I get the error:
Traceback (innermost last):
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/iw/progress_gui.py", line 20,
in run
    rc = self.todo.doInstall ()
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/todo.py", line 1480, in
    if self.method.systemMounted (self.fstab, self.instPath,
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/image.py", line 46, in
    self.loopbackFile = mntPoint + fstab.filesystemSpace(mntPoint)[0][0] + \
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/fstab.py", line 258, in
    space.append((mntpoint, isys.fsSpaceAvailable(topMount + '/' + mntpoint)))
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/isys.py", line 16, in fsSpaceAvailable
    return _isys.devSpaceFree(fsystem)
SystemError: (2, 'No such file or directory')

You were probably also mounting a FAT partition. This is a known bug and we are
working on an errata.
