Please give step by step instructions on how to reproduce this issue.
Comment 2 koogie 2001-01-30 16:12:10 EST
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
Comment 3 Michael Fulbright 2001-02-01 14:54:21 EST
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
Comment 4 koogie 2001-02-02 14:55:59 EST
Thanks, I tried yet again, this time making certain to only go forwards, and 
it's now installed successfully.  Thanks again.
Comment 5 Michael Fulbright 2001-02-08 13:15:07 EST
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?
Comment 6 koogie 2001-02-13 12:39:19 EST
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.
