Please give step by step instructions on how to reproduce this issue.
I'm running Windows 98 on my pc already. I partitioned my harddrive with fips,
formatted the new partition, then rebooted to begin installing redhat 7. This
took me through partitioning with DiskDruid, then formatting these partitions. I
then selected the custom install and chose the packages I wished. Everything
seemed to go smoothly, until at the very end, after all of the packages had
installed, I was advised that an exceptional error had occured, and that I
should copy the text of the error and file a bug report here. The text of the
error was as above. I have since tried to install redhat again (both custom and
workstation install) and have each time got to the same stage before this error
has again occurred. I would appreciate any help you could give me- I'm totally
new to unix, therefore I would be grateful if you could keep it simple
Did you ever go back/forwards or just forwards through each screen?
I have not been able to reproduce this behavior just going straight through the
Thanks, I tried yet again, this time making certain to only go forwards, and
it's now installed successfully. Thanks again.
I'm glad it worked, but I'd really like to know how to reproduce your original
problem so I can fix it :)
Could you remember the sequence of the screens you went back/forwards through,
and the values you entered?
Hi, as far as I remember (it was a couple of weeks ago now), I chose to
partition my disk with Disk Druid, went on to the next screen where I set the
partition sizes: / = 250 MB, /usr = 2 GB, /swap = 128 MB, var = 125 MB, opt =
approx 300 MB. I then went back to the previous screen to check something
(can't remember what) and then went forward again. As far as I can remember
this is the only time I went backwards through the screens - I hope it helps!
Thanks - I think this is a know problem.
