Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 30030
Anaconda errs during installation of packages
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:31:50 EDT
Upon starting the installation for the first time, I got through to the
package installation, whereby it erred.
This was before I checked for the updates disk, so after obtaining and
placing that .img onto a disk, I tried again. The disk was used when
indicated, but anaconda wouldn't even start up with this, and erred. It
repeated this another time, then on the third try, it went okay.
Then it got back to the package installation, and proceeded to hang again,
with this output:
Traceback (innermost last):
File "/usr/bin/anaconda.real", line 438, in ?

I tried another two times, both with and without updates disk. Both times
led to the same error, as above.
I'm running the installation on an Intel Celeron 400mHz, it's to be set up
as dual-boot (RedHat 7.0 and Win98), with a partitionless install.
Ctrl+Alt+F4 showed a message about EXT2.
Ctrl+Alt+F3 showed 'Autopartitioning failed' and it reported being unable
to produce /boot, /, or /Swapfile-000 because of lack of space.
[I don't think the third named partition is called that; I'm relying on
memory here, I'm unsure of what it is..]
The partitioning screen that appears during install also reported that my
Windows partition had no free space, even though there is 1.35GB left on
the drive according to Win98.
Are you putting the '/' mount point on the same partition as you are doing the
hard drive install from?
I am doing, yes.. I only have the one drive/partition, so I'm sure of that..
This is not supported in 7.0.
You might want to look at bug 18053.
