Description Loren Bickel 2001-03-08 00:05:44 UTC
I bought the Red Hat Linux 7 Bible published by IDG Books that contained a 
three CD Red Hat 7 OS. I tried to install on my Pentium II system on a 
dedicated WD 20GB drive partitioned as /(hdc1), swap(hdc5) and /home 
(hdc6). I've installed another Red Hat 7, Mandrake and Caldera 
distributions on this disk before settling on Red Hat and didn't have a 
problem like this.

I have 3 hard drives on my system (hda is a win98 6.2GB WD, hdb is win95 
1.2GB ? and hdc, a dedicated Linux drive (see above). Have 96MB RAM, a 
CDROM and floppy, 19" AOC 9Glrs monitor (selected 9Glr during install), 
ATI Mach 64 3D Rage Pro 215 GP video card, MAXTECH NX-32PCI (Realtek RTL-
8029(AS)) Ethernet card and a Yamaha DS-XG PCI Audio CODEC sound card.

I picked the "expert" installation and elected to install everything. I 
get as far as Begin Installation and the partitions format and an error 
box pops up (I think during, or immediately after, the last format-hdc6)
and says to copy this to a floppy disk. Following is the error dump.

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 1480, in

systemMounted self.loopbackFile = mntPoint + fstab.filesystemSpace

+ '/' + mntpoint))) File "/usr/lib/anaconda/isys.py", line 16, in 
fsSpaceAvailable return _isys.devSpaceFree(fsystem)
SystemError: (2, 'No such file or directory')

Can you help?
