Installation of 64-bit client fails with transaction error
Last modified: 2008-04-09 07:58:42 EDT
Description of problem:
When trying to install from RHEL5.2-Client-20080303.0-x86_64-DVD.iso the
installation fails with a "transaction error" reported by anaconda.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Always if the installation number is for workstation/virtualization or workstation.
I never seen it on the ordinary desktop install.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Insert DVD
2. Start Installation
3. Enter Installation number for WS with Virtualization
4. Go ahead
When installing the packages almost at the end (4 minutes left reported in the
progress bar) anaconda throws a dialgo box that says "transaction error", but
keeps the area for the reason empty.
Looking at the different consoles doesn't show anything strange. If I enter a
bash and do an rpm -i on the package reported to fail I get an "package already
Installation finishes until I need to reboot
None so far. Only tried the 64bit version yet, the 32bit is not downloaded so far.
Have you tried with more recent media? How did the 32-bit test go?
A screenshot of the error message (or at least the exact wording) would be
useful, as would the file /tmp/anaconda.log (can be copied to a remote host via
scp from the installer shell environment on tty2).

Tried to reproduce with the snapshot 3 images, but now it seems to work.
