Description Jeffrey Phillips 2000-10-26 01:05:35 UTC
I am loading v7.0 as a dual boot w/ Windows '98.  I am loading with the 
Hard Drive install option.

Receive the following with text and GUI install. (More after the dump).

Traceback (innermost last):
  File "/usr/bin/anaconda.real", line 438, in ?
    intf.run(todo, test = test)
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/text.py", line 1030, in 
run
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/textw/packages_text.py", 
line 33, in __call__
  File "/tmp/updates/todo.py", line 539, in getCompsList
    self.comps = self.method.readComps(self.hdList)
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/harddrive.py", line 43, 
in readComps
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/comps.py", line 459, in 
__init__
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/comps.py", line 360, in 
readCompsFile
TypeError: comp file version 3 or 4 expected

Local variables in innermost frame:
arch2: i686


I downloaded the anaconda update file (update-disk-20001009.img) and 
installed as instructed.  This did not help the matter.

Any input?
