Could you give more details on how to reproduce this problem?
HP Kayak Pentium II 300 mhz machine with 128 mb ram, running RH 6.0 kernel 2.2.16-3 currently.
I have 3 18 GB SCSI drives, and 1 4.5 gb SCSI drive on the same (wide scsi) bus. Also, a DDS-3 tape
backup, a 6 gb external drive, and a 100 mb zip drive on a narrow (8-bit) scsi bus.
I attempt to do an upgrade and the error occurs after it starts attempting "Reading package information."
I tried using the anaconda updates disk and that doesn't help.
Please give detailed steps of how you went through the install process, this
will allow us to more easily reproduce the error.
Things that might be useful to know:
I have a PC CD-writer. I mounted the ISO image of RH7.0 cd 1 on my linux box, and then shared that over the network.
I then wrote the RPMS and file structure to a cd using my pc writer. As a result, my rh box won't boot from the cd, so I
made a rh 7.0 boot disk, stuck in the cd and booted up.
I choose graphical display.
English language, 104 key keyboard and then upgrade.
I chose to customize packages.
At some point it says, "reading package information" and that is when it comes up with aforementioned debug info.
Another note: just verifying that the cd that I created (as well as the boot disk) is valid, I did another installation on 200 mhz non-scsi system
that went flawlessly.
