Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 21316
"exceptional condition" lockup
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:30:01 EDT
I've installed RH 7.0 in a linux-only i686, using auto disc partition (save nothing) in both gui install and text-mode.
This problem (alas) is intermittant. On the first install (either auto or text) the components have written to disc
without a problem, but in the post-install configuration stage I get a pop-up report "an exceptional condition has
occurred" and am asked to report this to bugzilla. Here I am. I have on floppy a 10 or 12 line file which appears
to deal with anaconda, and which is way over my simple head. I didn't find this in a form I recognize on errata.
I'll be glad to send the file as an attachment if you give me an email address. Or whatever you wish. Resorting
to brute force and awkwardness, I've repeated the whole install from boot up (gui and text), and the second time
there's no problem. Great distribution, incidentally. I'm a KDE user, if that matters. bpquinn

exceptional condition report during post-install
This is most certainly a problem either with your CDROM drive or the CD you are
installing from. If you purchased the CD from Red Hat then you can get a
replacement CD from Red Hat.
This is a dupe of bug 18019.
