Description Need Real Name 2000-11-02 11:06:17 UTC
Installed using anaconda update disk. 

Installation seems to proceed normally right through to the very end when 
the information below is displayed. The system will not boot.

This system was running fine on RedHat 6.2 until I tried to upgrade to 7.0 
and the upgrade crashed.

Traceback (innermost last):
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/iw/progress_gui.py", 
line 20, in run
    rc = self.todo.doInstall ()
  File "/tmp/updates/todo.py", line 1651, in doInstall
    self.writeConfiguration ()
  File "/tmp/updates/todo.py", line 1402, in writeConfiguration
    self.writeRootPassword ()
  File "/tmp/updates/todo.py", line 660, in writeRootPassword
    self.setPassword("root", pure)
  File "/tmp/updates/todo.py", line 1151, in setPassword
    stdin = p[0], stdout = devnull)
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/iutil.py", line 40, in 
    raise RuntimeError, command + " can not be run"
RuntimeError: /usr/bin/passwd can not be run

Local variables in innermost frame:

There was a problem installing the package which containged the passwd command. 
If you burned your own CD you may want to try again, it appears there could have
been an error with the current CD.
