Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 24923
Can't install on brand new hp pavilion 6830
Last modified: 2005-10-31 17:00:50 EST
Have repeatedly tried to install Red Hat Linux 7 (new delux edition)on
brand new hp pavilion 6830. See also my tech support records
under name "friscojohn". Trying to do "partitionless install". Celeron
processor, 700 mhz. 20 gig ultra dma hd. 64 megs ram. Windows
ME. Computer repeatedly
hangs about 1/3 through the install. Have used latest anaconca
update file. Current error message reads:
Traceback (innermost last):
line20 in run
rc = self.todo.doInstall ()
File '/temp/updates/todo.py",line 1488, in doinstall
File "/temp/updates/fstab.py", line 645, in makeFilesystems
File "/user/lib/anaconda/isys.py", line 78,in ddfile
OSError Errno 27] File too large
This is not the same error message I got before adding the update
file, but the freeze seemed to happen in the same place, and
anaconda seems involved.
If I can be of further assistance, please feel free to call me at
What sizes did you use for the partitionless loop back filesystem and swap size?
The defaults, which were 7815 and 32.
Hmm, I think the total size cannot be larger than 2000K.
Try making them 1950 and 32 and see if it works.
(The installer is supposed to impose this limit).
Closing due to inactivity.
