Installer crashes with error message
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:31:45 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.0; Windows 98; DigExt)
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Ran Autoboot.bat on IBM300GL
2.Create two partions using disk druid the first partion is 1540MB the
second partition is 64MB all set at the "/".
3.Entered root password and started installation
Actual Results: Traceback (innermost last):
line 20, in run
rc = self.todo.doInstall ()
File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/todo.py", line 1472, in
File "fstab.py", line 715, in mountFilesystems
raise SystemError, (errno, msg)
SystemError: (22, 'Invalid argument')
Local variables in innermost frame:
self: <fstab.GuiFstab instance at 84989e0>
msg: Invalid argument
Expected Results: Should have installed I guess?
The dump indicates you did not choose format the '/' partitoin. If this is the
case please try the install again, selecting to format this partition.
Please forgive my ignorance but I thought that when I specified how I wanted my
partitions setup that the next step would be formatting of the "/". Should I
be doing something else prior to using AUTOBOOT? Should I use FIPS to do the
formatting. Again, please forgive my ignorance this is the first time I've
used LINUX at all. I'm an MCSE (again, please don't hold it against me). I
want to see what all this fuss is about with LINUX. If I can get more out of
LINUX than I can paying for Microsoft products for our company then LINUX we
will use. Again, any help would be appreciated.
After you partition your system using disk druid, a screen should appear asking
you which partitions you want to format. Make sure they are all checked on.
