Failed partitionless install near "creating loopback file system" step
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:30:33 EDT
While trying to perform a partitionless install, I got through all of the configuration (Disk Druid, Workstation.......). When the installer nearly
finished creating the "loopback filesystem" it crashed and popped a new window with the following text in it.
#### Start report ####
Traceback (innermost last);
File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/iw/progress_gui", line 20, in run

This was hand noted and typed, so, there may be typos.....
I tried to use FIPS to create a new partition and that would not work. So, I tried the less desirable partitionless install. Still, no LINUX.
Machine: DELL Deminsion XPS R350 w/ 64 megs RAM and 9.8G HD Running Win98.
5.6 Gigs free - install should have work, I think.
Please give step by step instructions on how to reproduce this issue.
