Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 36398
RE: Thanks anyway
Last modified: 2005-10-31 17:00:50 EST
I tried installing Red Hat Linux 7.0 Partitionless, however, after it
makes partition_disk_image_file_ it used to fail and come up with an error
message. I found that other had this prob. so I downloaded the floppy
image for the update patch that was supposed to fix all this, however,
With the patch the install failed half way through making
partition_disk_image_file_ it comes up with an error message. I can't send
you info cause at the error message my system jams. I have 8GB of free
space current, I'm running a Pentium III 700Mhz, and I have tried every
type of install.
Please find a way to fix this because I really want to use RedHat Linux.
BTW - E-mail me if you find a fix to this prob.
If you are doing a partitionless install, the DOS partition must already exist
and be formatted as a DOS partition. The installer does not have the ability to
format a DOS partition. This is clearly documented in the help window in the
Disk Druid screen.
If there are no existing DOS partitions, it would be much better to create ext2
partitions instead, because ext2 is the native linux filesystem.
Dos partition does already exist and is formatted.
Hmm...I'm basically out of ideas. One workaround is if you have some extra hard
drive space, create an ext2 partition and install Linux to it. Another
workaround is to download 7.1, which we just released. I have done numerous
tests of installing 7.1 to a DOS partition, so this has been improved in the
current release. Resolving bug as current release.
Thanks anyway for your assistance, isn't amazing that I just managed to finish
download Red Hat Linux 7.0 around the same day you released Red Hat Linux 7.1.
