I get this when doing a hard drive installation. The installer crashes
whether I do an upgrade from 6.2 or a new intsall. It crashes whether or
not I have vfat partitions listed in /etc/fstab. I have downloaded and
implemented the installer fix posted on 10/9: update-disk-20001009.img.
The resulting anacdump.txt (below) looks very similar to the bug the update
was intended to fix, but has item MAKEDEV.

this seems to be a dup of bug 18242
This is almost certainly due to a corrupted download of the install image to a
The update was not supposed to fix this problem (it can't) but in some cases it
would report the error earlier.
