I'm trying to upgrade a RedHat 7.0 system and it crashes just before I get
to pick the individual packages to upgrade.  This is a HP LPR NetServer,
PIII 750, 512 MB RAM dual scsi hard drives.  I booted off the CDROM to do
the upgrade.   Here is the traceback--

Traceback (innermost last):
  File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 438, in ?, test = test)
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/", line 336, in run ()
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/", line 678, in run
    mainloop ()
  File "/usr/lib/python1.5/site-packages/", line 2554, in mainloop
  File "/usr/lib/python1.5/site-packages/", line 125, in __call__
    ret = apply(self.func, a)
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/", line 412, in
    next = self.currentScreen.getNext ()
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/iw/",
line 97, in getNext
    from fstab import GuiFstab
ImportError: cannot import name GuiFstab

Local variables in innermost frame:
self: <installpath_gui.InstallPathWindow instance at 8485aa0>

ToDo object:

We tried the fix-- 

anaconda update disk (RHBA-2000-084)  

 which didn't work--it still crashed.  I called support ( we have
per-server support) and described the problem--he suggested that I submit
the problem here.  Let me know what you find.  Thanks

There is a problem with your CD. You can get a new CD from customer support if
you purchased a Red Hat Linux box set.
