Description tristan.greaves 1999-05-10 06:49:29 EDT
Example of bug occuring:

1.  Select packages which take up more disk space than you
    already have.

2.  When you are warned about this, go BACK to re-select

An error, "Unable to mount..." (something) appears.  This
isn't fatal, the install goes on as normal.  It looks as if
the installer is trying to mount a partition that is
already mounted.

RH6.0/Intel, FTP install.

known bug. Hit 'retry' and you should be able to proceed.
Comment 2 tristan.greaves 1999-05-10 10:20:59 EDT
Hitting RETRY does indeed allow the installation to continue
successfully, but the error dialog box still allows dread to enter
the heart of the user. :-)
