Description Matthias Grimm 2001-02-07 13:33:51 UTC
I tried to update my 7.0 to Fisher on my toshiba-laptop without success. I
aditionally included some packages for upgrade by myself. After
'transfering install-image to harddrive' (??) anaconda crashed with the
included trace. I Started from floppy and didn't used any options.

Comment 2 Michael Fulbright 2001-02-07 16:26:51 UTC
Is /tmp a symlink on your system?

Comment 3 Glen Foster 2001-02-08 15:52:14 UTC
We (Red Hat) should really try to resolve this before next release.

Comment 4 Matt Wilson 2001-02-14 13:29:50 UTC
is /tmp/ a separate partition on your system?  Is it a symlink?

Comment 5 Glen Foster 2001-02-28 19:36:38 UTC
Please reply to the question about whether /tmp is a symlink on your system.  If
/tmp *is* a symlink, what you are seeing is known behavior and not really a
bug... it works fine with /tmp as a real directory...

If /tmp is NOT a symlink, then there could be a bug and we need to know the
answer ASAP.
