Description Ken 2001-03-24 21:41:17 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows 98; Win 9x 4.90; 
AT&T WNS5.0)

Every time I install RedHat, about 30% through the loopback filesystem 
creation, I get an error.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Go through any installation
2.Mount the root on a FAT32 filesystem that has gone through the 
installation half-way once before, but the computer turned off before it 
3.Install and get my wonderful error.

Actual Results:  30% through creating the loopback filesystem it crashes.

Expected Results:  It should've installed!!!

The error I get is:
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 1488, in 
    self.fstab.mountFilesystems (self.instPath)
"fstab.py", line 710, in makeFilesystems()
    File "tmp/updates/fstab.py/", line 645 in MakeFilesytems
(slef.progressWindow, _("loopback"),
File "isys.py", line 78, in ddfile
OSError: [Errno 27] File too large
That's all of it that I can see. The whole program crashes, so Ic an't 
copy it to disk or anything.

How big did you specify the loopback filesystem to be, and how much free space
is on the drive you put it?
