Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 18527
Internal error during installation
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:29:03 EDT
Text observed on screen during text mode installation of RedHat on a Dell
Inspiron 5000. Happens after / has been formatted. The diskette is
available, if you need it.
An internal error occured in the installation program. Please report this
error to Red Hat (through the bugzilla.redhat.com web site) as soon as
possible. The information on this failure may be saved to a floppy disk,
and will help Red Hat in fixing the problem.
Traceback (innermost last):

The are some lines below missing. Do you try to mount any non-ext2 partition
(Windows/DOS) by chance?
What type of media were you installing from? (CD, FTP, etc...)
If CD, was it a burned copy or one from the box set?
What type of install did you do? (Workstation, Server, Custom, Upgrade)
What kind of partitions did you make and how big did you make them?
Did you try to mount any non-ext2 filesystems?
What packages were you trying to install? (Doesn't have to be exact, but enough
to give us an idea of how much drive space you would need.)
Closing due to inactivity.
