Description Need Real Name 2001-01-11 22:35:54 EST
I was attempting to upgrade from 6.2 to 7.0.1 (which I have on CD).

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 1526, in doInstall
  self.instLog = open(self.instLogName, "w+")
IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/mnt/sysimage/tmp/upgrade.log'

Sorry, I don't know how to print the stack frame in Pdb.
If you tell me how, I can re-run the upgrade and give you the relevant variables.

My system is a bit of a mess -- it was not cleanly upgraded from 6.1 to 6.2 --
so this may be just my problem.

Is /tmp a symlink on your system?
Comment 2 Need Real Name 2001-01-13 18:15:32 EST
Yes.  The relevant links (gotten from ls -ls) are as follows:

/tmp -> /var/tmp/
/usr/tmp -> ../var/tmp
/var/tmp (real directory)

I don't remember whether the 6.1 install had an option to do
this or whether I hacked it myself.  If the 6.1 install had
the option then I would have used it.

By the way, there is a further irregularity in the above list
that is not a typo:  the /tmp link does indeed have a trailing slash
on it and the /usr/tmp link really does not have the trailing slash.
(Although I can't guarantee that the /usr/tmp link did not
originally have a trailing slash, because I manually changed
that when I was trying to work around the bug).

Thanks a lot for looking at this so quickly!
Comment 3 Need Real Name 2001-01-17 10:51:55 EST
I removed the /tmp soft-link and the upgrade worked fine.

When I searched the bug database before reporting this bug,
I forgot to include resolved bugs.

I apologize for to wasting your time.

Thanks again,
