Attempted to "ftp" install vestalp5.upt.austin.ibm.com with FC5, using "fedora-
development tree(aka rawhide), snapshotMay1". After entering the non-anonymous
ftp login, the install proceeded, but quickly generated the following error:
"Running anaconda, the Fedora Core system installer - please wait...
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 684, in ?
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/instdata.py", line 32, in ?
ImportError: libpam.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or
install exited abnormally
sending termination signals...done
sending kill signals...done
you may safely reboot your system"
The problem also occurred on "asha.upt".
Machine type (p650, x235, SF2, etc.): p9119-595
Cpu type (Power4, Power5, IA-64, etc.): Power5
Is this reproducible? yes
If so, how long does it (did it) take to reproduce it? A few minutes
Describe the steps:
Boot system using CD boot.iso image, or network.
Configure network interface.
Select "non-anonymous" ftp, and enter server addr and directory.
Enter server login and password when prompted.
Thanks for the report. This is due to the install method using minstg2.img
instead of stage2.img. If you do an NFS install, this should work fine for you.
This should be fixed in tomorrow's build.

changing version from FC5 to other as we are doing rawhide testing and I
incorrectly directed the team to open current May snapshots of Fedora-devel (aka
rawhide) against version FC5.
Paulette, I have also been trying ftp versions on each snapshot. It recreates
on May 25 as stated by RedHat engineers. Will copy May26 snapshot (should be
fixed there) about noon after mirror is complete. If you get a chance, please
re-attempt this test, or send email to CSDL to attempt while we are out for
Memorial Day holiday.

We are loosing this frame/system due to depreciation costs. I need to shutdown
and disconnect this system. If possible we will try to recreate this bug on a
Sorry for any inconvenience.
