Description Clint Larraga 2001-01-30 03:57:52 UTC
I have a dual boot system Win98SE and Linux and had initial problems 
installing redhat 7.0 on the linux partition (using lilo as boot loader). 
During the installation (tried for both GUI and text mode) I mounted the 
vfat partition using /mnt/drive_x and this is what i got.


Traceback (innermost last)
	File "/var/tmp/anaconda-
7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/iw/progress_gui.py", line 20 in run

	File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/todo.py", line 
		if self.method.systemMounted 
	File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/image.py",line 46, 
in systemMounted

		self.loopbackFile=mntPoint+fstab.filesystem Space(mntPoint)

	File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/fstab.py", line 
258, in filesystemSpace
	File "/usr/lib/anaconda/isys.py", line 16, in fsSpaceAvailable 

	System Error:(2,'No such file or directory')


I retried leaving the vfat partition unmounted and proceeded with the 
installation. When everything was finished I just remounted the same vfat 
partition using the mount command and I had no more problem. This bug 
(although there is a workaround) can be discouraging for newbies.
