Description Ryan Cresawn 2001-01-03 21:13:20 UTC
When installing Red Hat Linux 7.0 the installer crashed while formatting
the hard drive on an AMD Athlon 800 MHz.

Traceback (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 "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/todo.py", line 1472, in
  self.fstab.mountFileststems (self.instPath)
 File "fstab.py", line 710, in mountFilesystems
  iutil.mkdirChain(instPath + mntpoint)
 File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/iutil.py", line 193, in
  os.mkdir(path, 0755)
OSError: [Errno 17] File exists: '/mnt/sysimage'

Boot from CDROM.  Select English.  Select "Generic 104-key PC".  Select Next.
Select "2 Button Mouse (PS/2)".  Select Next.  Select Next to pass the intro.
Select "Custom System".  Select Next.  Select Next to enter Disk Druid.  Add

/boot     hda1 54 MB
/         hda5 3004 MB
<Swap>    hda6 517 MB
/mnt/hda7 hda7 4479 MB

Select Next.  Select all partitions to be formatted and select "Check for bad
blocks while formatting".  I believe checking for bad blocks is related to the
bug I reported.  Select Next.  Unselect "Create boot disk".  Select Next.  Enter
network information.  Select Next.  Select "System clock uses UTC".  Select
Next.  Enter root password and then create a user account.  Select Next.  Accept
defaults for "Authentication Configuration" screen by selecting Next.  Scroll
down to the bottom of the window and select "Everything".  Select Next.  Monitor
detected so select Next.  Select "Customize X Configuration" and "Use Graphical
Login".  Select Next.  Select "1152x864" for "32Bits per Pixel".  Select Next.
Select Next to begin installation.

Formatting / filesystem...
Formatting /boot filesystem...
Formatting /mnt/hda7 filesystem...

This is where it brings up the message I typed in the bug report.  I should also
mention that it doesn't appear to be consistent because when typing these
instructions I found that it worked fine but it failed several times earlier.

I now believe this bug was caused by a flaky memory card.  I replaced the card
and installed RH 7 without any problems.  The system has been very stable ever
