Hello Everybody

Does anybody out there know how to solve the Traceback Error. I am sure 
everybody is familiar with it, if that is not true check 17994 and 18163 
which I submitted, the former includes the text of the error. It occurs 
during the installation of Redhat at the "Reading Package Information"?

It is complaining about anaconda. I have tried everything possible to fix 
this problem. Including downloading all of the files from ftp.redhat.com 
instead of a different mirror ( I figured they are bound to have right 

I also don't know why installation runs in text mode even though I request 
graphical mode.

I am installing from the hard drive which is an 15 GB hardrive partitoned 
4 for Linux and 11 for FAT32.

Machine Specifications:
PIII 650E overclocked to 884.
Asus CUSL2 m/board with 815e intel chipset
Nvidia Geforce2 MX video card
SB Live! Value
Fujitsu 15GB HD

Please let me know what can I do to resolve this problem.

Thank you in advance

We will really need the complete text from the traceback you get when the
install fails.

Are you being sure to use the 'binary' option to ftp.
Comment 2 Karim 2000-10-06 20:46:16 EDT
Yes the FTP brings the rpms over in BINARY mode.

and the text of the error message is in bug #17994.
