Description Matthias Grimm 2001-02-07 08:33:51 EST
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.

Is /tmp a symlink on your system?
Comment 3 Glen Foster 2001-02-08 10:52:14 EST
We (Red Hat) should really try to resolve this before next release.
Comment 4 Matt Wilson 2001-02-14 08:29:50 EST
is /tmp/ a separate partition on your system?  Is it a symlink?
Comment 5 Glen Foster 2001-02-28 14:36:38 EST
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.
