Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 25259
mounting of vfat during installation throws exception
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:30:58 EDT
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)
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
File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/image.py",line 46,
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.
