Description coldflamez 2001-02-16 18:45:15 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.0; Windows 98)

When the installer finish installing the file, it does a post installation 
process. It then popup a message saything that there is a runtimeerror 
with mkinitrd.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. I instal the workstation mode with only gnome packages.
2. The files were installed and the post install thing went to work.
3. A message say that a bug have occur. It told me to go here and post it.

Actual Results:  The message so this:

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 1732, in 
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/lilo.py", line 345, in 
    initrd = self.makeInitrd (kernelTag, instRoot)
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/lilo.py", line 224, in 
    root = instRoot)
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/iutil.py", line 40, in 
    raise RuntimeError, command + " can not be run"
RuntimeError: /sbin/mkinitrd can not be run

Expected Results:  It should have work and i would be using linux for the 
first time.
