Description ernestcachia 2000-10-17 03:54:20 EDT
Hello. Whenever I try to upgrade my existing RedHat 6.2 system to 7.0, I
get an error dialog window reporting all sorts of "syntax" errors in the
anaconda script. The install procedure then exists. I've re-downloaded
anaconda more than once and still get the same errors. I an installing from
a HD partition and working on a Pentium 500MHz system with 256Mb RAM and
more than adequate HD space. This is very frustrating. Can you please help.
I also have a floppy which was automatically generated when the errors

It looks like the hard drive install image you made could be corrupted.

Try downloading it again from a different site (be sure to use the binary ftp

You might also want to try burning your own CDs from the iso's provided.

Does this help?

Thanks for the tip. I tried downloading the same files from other mirror sites
but still got the same errors.... I gave up and got a CD burned from the ISO
image.... worked fine.

Many thanks and please consider this bug query closed.
