Description Andrew Park 2001-04-08 07:41:26 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.01; Windows 98)

After downloading linux 7.0 from RedHat FTP site, I made the boot 
diskette, using the boot image and rawrite from the site. However, when I 
started installation, after creating a user account, an internal error 
occured during the process of reading the package.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot from a floppy, or start installation using autoboot.bat
<Then the rest didn't matter much, because I tried using different options 
and different partitioning methods, ranging from using PartitionMagic to 
make Linux partitions to letting Druid create the partitions>

Actual Results:  Same exact error for maybe 4~5 times.

The Error Message:

Traceback (innermost last):
  File "/usr/bin/anaconda.real", line 438, in ?

Since this is a hard drive install, how did you do the download?  Did you
download the iso images to your hard drive and then do an install?  Also, are
you sure that you did the download in binary format?  This bug looks similar to
bug #21675 and bug #18019.

I'm experiencing the same problem..... The response listings to the availiable 
anaconda patch show the true extent of this problem.... there are many users 
who have downloaded the RPMS and base files from FTP servers and had the same 
subsequent error when trying to install....

The anaconda fix update simply doesn't seem to work...
