Description Matthew Greensmith 2001-01-24 00:06:06 EST
The attached failure occured during an install of RedHat 7.0 on a Dell 
Optiplex GX110 BIOS rev A02.

The system is a single processor PIII 667 with 256MB RAM, install method 
was via CDROM.  No changes where made to the system from factory except 
change in boot order to enable CD boot.

The system already had NT installed on a 2GB partition which was retained.

Install type was custom with the Everything package group selected. 
Partitioning was 2GB - NT(hda1), 50MB - Boot(hda2), 256MB - Swap (hda5), 
4.5GB - root (/) (hda6).

During install system crashed giving below message.  This occured during 
the first CD.

Problem was reproduced on second system (identical).

Problem did not occur when the anaconda, and anaconda-runtime packages 
where de-selected before install.  No other changes made.


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 ()

    return _isys.devSpaceFree(fsystem)
SystemError: (2, 'No such file or directory')
