RH 7.1 install fails at the swapon part
Last modified: 2005-10-31 17:00:50 EST
When installing via FTP, the prcess breaks when it is doing something with
the swap (turning it on, I think) after I've selected all the packages to
install. I should memtion that RH 7.1's install fdisk keeps corrupting my
partition tables, so I've had to boot with Debian rescue disks to
re-initialize and re-partition the drive, and create the file systems and
initialize the swap that way. The drive is a Fujitsu UDMA2 4.3G disk.
Debian cfdisk/fdisk and DOS fdisk do fine with the drive, but RH 7.1's
fdisk screws it up.
Here is the backtrace from Anaconda that I saved to a disk. The whole file
is too long to paste in:
Traceback (innermost last):

Do you see any error messages on VC3 or VC4?
Closing due to inactivity. Please reopen if you have more information. Sorry
that the trail ran cold on this issue, but it was originally filed against
anacron instead of anaconda, which is where it sat for four months. By the time
that it was assigned to anaconda, the filer had stopped responding.
