Description WiffleLess 2000-12-16 04:38:48 UTC
I downloaded the fixes from the Red Hat site for the Anaconda install and 
booted them.  However, those fixes still didn't fix my problem.  I used 
the generic keyboard, the generic ps/2 three button mouse, I did a 
partitionless install, and tried installing KDE by itself, KDE AND GNOME, 
and Gnome by itself, and got the same message everytime.  I receieve the 
message while   CREATING LOOPBACK FILE SYSTEM ON DEVICE /DEV/HDA1...
HERE'S THE ERROR:
Trace back (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 "/tmp/updates/todo.py", line 1488 in doInstall
     self.fstab.makeFilesystems ()
File "/tmp/ipdates/fstab.py", line 645, in makeFilesystems
     (self.progreeeWindow,_("loopback"),
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/isys.py", line 78 in ddfile
     os.write(fd, buf)
OSError: [errno 27] File too large

NOTE:  There is more to the error(not much judging by the scroll bar) but 
due to the system halting everytime, I am unable to scroll down, click ok, 
click debug, or click save to floppy.  
Please get back to me.  I would love to take advantage of Linux.  If there 
is any additional information needed, please email back.  Thank you!

This is a dupe of bug 19577.

Would you please give step by step instructions on how to reproduce this
problem. Include information on the size and physical location of the partitions
you used.
