Installer crashes in progress bar code
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:33:30 EDT
Description of problem:
In a text mode install, the installer crashes while trying to update
the progress bar due to a divide by zero error. More frightening, however,
is that the python interpreter doesn't appear to always catch the
divide-by-zero, as on another occasion, the installer died in a signal 8.
Sometimes - it sometimes works without crashing, other times very early.
Here's a python traceback.
Traceback (innermost last):

Let me know if there is any information you need that would help.
I think that you might have a bad cd. Can you look on VC3 and VC4 and see if
there are any error messages?
Nevermind, it was a configuration problem in the hardware.
