User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows NT 4.0; COM+ 

No matter how many times I try to install RedHat Linux 7 on my Gateway PC, 
I get the same failure.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to install RedHat Linux 7
2. See the described results

Actual Results:  Traceback (innermost last):
  File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 438, in ?, test = test)
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/", line 1030, in 
    rc = apply (step[1](), step[2])
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/", line 507, in 
    if todo.doInstall ():
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/", line 1466, in 
    self.fstab.makeFilesystems ()
  File "", line 666, in makeFilesystems
  File "", line 116, in umount
    mountCount[what] = mountCount - 1
TypeError: bad operand type(s) for -

Local variables in innermost frame:
what: /mnt/loophost
removeDir: 1

ToDo object:


Expected Results:  The OS should install without this error.

What install choices did you make?
Comment 2 Andy Schaub 2001-02-13 23:32:46 EST
I took the defaults for the most part (no special device drivers); when asked 
for the mount point, I entered / as the documentation seemed to suggest. But 
that might have been wrong.
