Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 27109
6.2->7.0 upgrade anaconda crash
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:31:25 EDT
Attempting update from RedHat 6.2 to 7.0
Installing from hard drive.
Anaconda crashes during installation after
announcing 'checking packages'.
Selection of text-mode install has no effect.
Update image 20001009 has no effect (i.e. asks
for and uses the image disk, but subsequent
failure is identical).
System is dual-boot Win98 and RedHat6.2, using
PowerQuest PartitionMagic and BootMagic.
Debug info as follows:
Traceback (innermost last):

The hard drive image you are using is missing file(s).
Incidentally, we have changed the hard drive install method in the latest public
beta (fisher) to use ISO images of the CDs ... this will allow you to match the
ISOs against known good md5sums BEFORE beginning an install ... hopefully saving
some time and making any failure case more obvious ... thanks for your report!
