Description Ernst-Heinrich Klaas 2001-02-14 03:20:18 EST
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
uniprocessor.

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
scsi-subdirectory.


Traceback (innermost last):
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/iw/progress_gui.py", line 20, in run
    rc = self.todo.doInstall ()
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/todo.py", line 1630, in doInstall

If you do not choose install everything does it work ok?
Comment 2 Ernst-Heinrich Klaas 2001-03-15 05:17:54 EST
It works OK if we install without "install everything".
Comment 3 Michael Fulbright 2001-04-02 11:59:07 EDT
Erik is it possible the enterprise kernel could be causing problems?
Comment 4 Erik Troan 2001-04-02 17:56:21 EDT
No, it seems to be the smp modules getting in the way. We need to test this.
Comment 5 Erik Troan 2001-04-03 18:01:03 EDT
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.
