Installation Error for RH 7.0
Last modified: 2005-10-31 17:00:50 EST
Receiving error message, "/usr/binanaconda" line 438, in? intf.run (to do, test=test).
I have downloaded the update image from RH's site and another mirror site still no Luck. I've been at this for 12 hours now..HELP!!!!
I must have this server up and running my COB Tuesday.
If this will help, I'm not partioning the HD to run another OS and the HD drive has no existing partions. As a matter of fact, I did a
low level format on my HD, still NO LUCK. If this will help, I have 2G of HD space & 32M of memory installed. I've done both
custom & server installations same BAD results. Also, before the copying process begins, I get the message that I have low amount
of memory, therefore it creates the SWAP partition to continue.
The following is the info from the dump file:
Traceback (innermost last):
File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 438, in ?
intf.run(todo, test = test)

"/dev/" + cdname)

How large was the '/' partition you specified?
The / partition was 50M
FYI...when doing a custom installation have have the following partitions defined:
/ - 50M
/boot - 16M
/var - 200M
/home - 250
/usr - 750
/usr /local - 1082M
I did finally, get the automatic partition for a server installation to work, but STARTX does not work. netcfg (control panel) is the tool that I'm
accustomed to using for configuring my small office severs (basically an office internet connection & Samba, file server). I would like do a
custom install, that way I know what's installed, how big the partitions are, etc....
Your '/' partition should be at least 100M in size.
Try that and let me know if it works.
Closing due to inactivity.
