I am trying to update my redhat 6.0 to redhat 7.0.....
   the load program abends after:
      1)  the update screen
      2)  the workstation:
            a)  auto partition.
            b)  druid.
            c)  fdisk.
    the loading program has two messages:
      1) Symbol __glXActiveScreens from module /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extentions/libdri????
                is unresolved.                                                                           ???? i can't see the end of the line.

5)The only thing i could see odd in my system  is the fdisk "p" does not agree with my intended partitions
   listed as  hda1 hda2(hda5 hda6 hda7 hds8) during system 6.0 loading or as listed in fstab.  
   fdisk "v" warning partition 5 is empty  16437 unallocated sectors;
Comment 4 Michael Fulbright 2000-11-15 11:23:39 EST
Hmm having partition 5 empty would seem to be a problem. Could you attach the
output from fdisk 'p' and expert mode (type 'x' to enter fdisk expert mode) 'p'
command as well.

I am still waiting for a solution to my inability to install the Red Hat 7.0
Do u need more info???
Is there something I can do?????????


Comment 7 Michael Fulbright 2001-02-08 15:49:18 EST
If you try the text mode installer (just type 'text' at the boot prompt) what
happens?
