Description Christian Lindstrom 2000-11-09 10:29:29 EST
While installing on a ThinkPad A21e on the 7-10th Gig of my drive I received the below anaconda dump (two attempts) while / partition was 
being formatted. The second time, I included "check for bad blocks" with the same eventual result.
I was using 128 MB swap with the remainder (2600 MB the first time, and 2400 the second) as a / partition.
The Thinkpad is brand new with the forst 7 GB reserved for Win98. I was installing "everything" on the free space formatted for ext2fs.
I also set up my FAT32 partitions to be mounted as /mnt/c, /mnt/d, /mnt/e using Disk Druid.

Here is the error log from anacdump.txt:


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 "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/todo.py", line 1480, in doInstall
    if self.method.systemMounted (self.fstab, self.instPath, self.hdList.selected()):
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/image.py", line 46, in systemMounted
    self.loopbackFile = mntPoint + fstab.filesystemSpace(mntPoint)[0][0] + \
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/fstab.py", line 258, in filesystemSpace
    space.append((mntpoint, isys.fsSpaceAvailable(topMount + '/' + mntpoint)))
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/isys.py", line 16, in fsSpaceAvailable
    return _isys.devSpaceFree(fsystem)
SystemError: (2, 'No such file or directory')

Local variables in innermost frame:
fsystem: /mnt/sysimage//mnt/c

ToDo object:
