Probably the buggiest install script ever written.  Rarely works correctly
since Redhat 6.

Comment 1 Michael Fulbright 2000-10-03 18:57:55 UTC
This is most likely because of an error in the fileutils RPM in the hard drive
install image.

Please check that the fileutils RPM is intact, and present.

If so, please run the md5sum command on the file and I will check it is ok.

Comment 2 James L. Stadelmann 2000-10-05 01:15:32 UTC
Reopened reportedly 'resolved' bug18136 - with checksig & md5sum info for
openssl.

I tried to install the RH7. I have RH6.2 and I attemtped it to RH7.
I boot from floppy and select the FTP upgrade. Then the anaconda wrote to
console
"...anaconda... terminated with signal 12.
...Reboot system."
The machine was a iPI200MMX/16MB EDO RAM.

I tried the installation on an "AMD K6-III/128MB SDRAM" from ATAPI CDROM. The
installation (upgrade) worked correctly.


Comment 4 Michael Fulbright 2000-10-05 22:11:13 UTC
This occurs when there is something corrupt about the downloaded hard drive
image. We've done numerous hard drive installs w/o seeing these issues.

Comment 5 derek 2000-10-05 23:39:22 UTC
From looking at usenet, I know that anaconda errors of this nature have been
widespread and frustrating to many people.  If the root cause is simply a bad
image, though, then the fix is easy - just try downloading it again.  That
worked for me, finally.
