Description Greg La Buhn 2000-10-04 11:21:06 EDT
I am trying to install on a Pro-Star NP7200 laptop with 64Mb of RAM, Intel
Pentium 200Mgz processor, 3Gb disk, C&T 65554 video with 4Mb.

Here is the error file the installation produced.

Traceback (innermost last):

Please reproduce Brent.
Comment 3 Michael Fulbright 2000-10-05 16:34:11 EDT
Did you burn this CD yourself? It appears you have a corrupt install image.

You could try an expert install and since it does not probe as much as the
default mode you could get around this issue, and configure X after the install
is complete.
Comment 4 Greg La Buhn 2000-10-10 09:31:02 EDT
I did burn the CD my self and have install/upgraded 2 other systems with it.  
It is not consistent on where the install stops.  Most of the time it stops 
when installing the packages.  The system just reboots after a while.
Comment 5 Brent Fox 2000-10-24 11:26:56 EDT
I suspect that the problem is a corrupt install image on the CD.  If you can,
try again with a different CD and let me know if the same thing happens.
Comment 6 Michael Fulbright 2000-11-07 14:48:07 EST
What video card is in the system having this problem?

Is the same card in the other systems which worked ok?
Comment 7 Greg La Buhn 2000-11-07 15:58:52 EST
Got upgrade to work when I downloaded the newest iso and used that.  Please
close this bug.

Comment 8 Brent Fox 2000-11-09 10:43:08 EST
Great!  Glad to know things are working ok now.
