Description Jonas Linnet 2000-11-08 17:39:39 UTC
This bug seems to have some similarities with # 20362/20363, the installer 
crashes during the "reading packages"-fase, however the reported solution 
to the above bugs has no effect.

I have dowloaded 3 different HD-install images from from 3 different 
sites, and also tried to run the installation from a CD, which has 
successfully installed rh7.0 on other machines. On my machine the 
installer crashes at the exact same time. I have also used the anaconde 
update disk on the HD-install. My machine has a multiboot-environment with 
NT4.0, win98 and Linux, I have had rh6.2 installed and running without 
problems this way. All linux-partitions were deleted and recreated with 
fdisk during install. I've copied the traceback-dump below, really hope 
you can help here!

Best reg. Jonas
