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
File "/tmp/ipdates/fstab.py", line 645, in makeFilesystems
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/isys.py", line 78 in ddfile
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
