Description egbert 2001-04-27 02:03:08 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.51 [en] (X11; I; Linux 2.2.14-5.0 sparc64)

Using "Workstation" install (not upgrade) option and single user interface,
the anaconda reports unable to execute the /usr/sbin/usermod.

Quick examination of the entire filesystem (in ALT-F2 console) shows no
such usermod.  It is really missing.

Downloaded RedHat 7.1-en from ftp.flash.net

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select Wortkstation install, do not ask for individual packages
2. Provide network information and disk druid formats
3. During installation, anaconda reports in ALT-F1 virtual console that
/usr/sbin/usermode is not found.

Actual Results:  Installation fails and proceeds to say "reboot".

Expected Results:  Distribution 7.1 should have /usr/sbin/usermod in the
system image prior to release.

I'm almost certain that you have a bad cd or something went wrong during the
download.  Anytime you see the installer not being able to find files on the cd,
the installation media is almost always corrupt.  Please re-download and try
again.  Reopen this bug if the problem persists.  By the way, we have seen this
*exact* problem from a few people (i.e. the same missing file).  I think that
some of the mirrors out there are serving up damaged ISOs.  Do you remember
which ftp site you got it from?

Please close this bug report, the MD5SUM does not match between all four files 
(disc1, disc2, powertool, srpms).
