Can you attach the complete traceback you received?
Comment 2 Rob Hendelman 2007-01-18 22:34:42 EST
I typed this traceback out and that was all that was listed in the box.  What
more do you need me to do?  I do not have a working OS on that machine so I'm
not sure what you are looking for.


Comment 3 David Cantrell 2007-03-30 14:17:30 EDT
We need /tmp/anacdump.txt.  You can get that two ways on RHEL-4:

1) Click the Floppy button on the window where you see the message.  It will
write the file to a floppy disk.

2) Switch over to the shell (Ctrl+Alt+F2) and scp or ftp the file to a network
location of your choosing.
