Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 25260
Anaconda Error on Install
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:30:58 EDT
While installing RH Linux Server 7.0 I get the following dump. This
occurs after the partitions formatted. I am installing the US English
version. Looks to me like it wants a directory that isn't there.
Hardware is Pentium 133, 64 MB RAM, 8GB HD (linux), 400 MB HD (DOS-16), S3
868 video card with 4MB, Dell 868 SVGA Monitor, Realtek 10Mb, Realtek
10/100Mb, and MS Bus mouse detected as generic PS/2. Booting from CD ROM
which is IDS as are the HD's.
Traceback (innermost last):

Was /home a formatted ext2 partition?
My guess is, probably so. I can't check right now. The system had ManDrake
Linux 7.2 on it before the Server install. Should I blow away the partitions
before the install of the 7.0 RH server?
Deleted all partitions from the old Mandrake installation using DiskDruid and
the install did not fail. Thx for your help.
