hard drive install fails from read only filesystem
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:29:57 EDT
attempting install from hard drive from RH-7.0-respin.
had to use hard drive, installer won't recognize my
scsi cdrom (SONY on an adaptec, seems odd...). get
up to choice of MD5, etc, for passwd file. leave at
defaults, use "OK". blam... looks like the installer
cannot perform the install from a read-only file system
(jaz 2G w/ ro flag set, in this case)?
since i'm not going to pass the jaz drive around the
office writable this leaves us unable to install RH-7.0
Traceback (innermost last):

note: problem is reproducable. i can send the entire
dump if it would be useful.
Changed anaconda in CVS to mount hard drive install sources readonly -- good
Verified as resolved.
