Description of problem:
Tried textual and graphical update from 7.0 to 7.1, but have done hardware changes since the 7.0 install after it first came out. The
message given is too terse to get anything from it and the dump onto the floppy is too extensive for my untrained eye to see what
went wrong. It did it during the update process where it was looking at what is currently installed, near as I can tell. The 7.0 version
was not working at the time I attempted the update.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot from CD
2. Choose option 1 "update"
3. crash after 10 minutes or so
Actual Results: system shut down with message it was OK to reboot
Expected Results: Installation should have continued with options offered as what packages I'd like installed.
Additional info: Attempting to attach the floppy output

This is what was suggested that I save and send along with the bug report.
I think that you have a bad cd. It looks like the installer can't read the
kernel-enterprise package. Can you check the md5sums of the iso's that you
downloaded and make sure they match the ones on the ftp site?
Problem is gone. I was trying to install on an old OS/2 Warp 4 box (gotta say, I really loved that system). Tore it up and installed with a different system
configuration and it went OK.
Consider this DR withdrawn.
Thanks for the feedback.
Thanks for the bug report. I hate retiring old machines too. I have a room
full of them at home. :)
