Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 239066
Ananconda fails on this fairly common Dell workstation
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:03 EST
Description of problem:
Anaconda fails to start on Dell Optiplex GX270 with Nvidia Quadro NVS 280 SD
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot from Fedora 6.93 i386 DVD
2. Ananconda fails
Abject failure and misery
Fedora 7 Test4 installation.
How is it failing? If you are getting a traceback, please attach the complete
exception message to this bug report.
The crux seems to be this:
ImportError: /usr/lib/python2.5/lib-dynaload/cStringIO.so : invalid ELF header
Now I look at this error it seems likely to me that this is due to a bad DVD
image or media.
