Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 27550
anaconda fails on uniprocessor and "Install everything"
Last modified: 2007-03-26 23:41:01 EDT
The installation program crashes when a driver disk containing smp
drivers is used on a uniprocessor installation and the option
"Install everything" is selected.
This problem is reproducable using RedHat Linux 7.0 ("install dd") and
the dd160.img LSILogic driver disk for SYM53C1010 based systems on a
Anaconda apparently hasn't generated the
/mnt/sysimage/lib/modules/2.2.16-22smp subtree, but it attempts to copy
the .../lib/modules/2.2.16-22smp/sym53c8xx.o driver into the

If you do not choose install everything does it work ok?
It works OK if we install without "install everything".
Erik is it possible the enterprise kernel could be causing problems?
No, it seems to be the smp modules getting in the way. We need to test this.
Fixed for next release.

download http://people.redhat.com/msw/dd-updates.img and write it to a floppy
disk. This is an "anaconda updates" disk. Use "linux updates dd" along with
the driver disk you are using. You will be prompted to insert the disk. This
will prevent the traceback.
