installation of packages failed
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:34:12 EDT
Description of Problem: Error dialog appears with the following information:
An exceptional condition has occured. This is most likely a bug. Please copy the full text of this exception and file a bug report at
Traceback (innermost last):
File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/iw/progress_gui.py", line 20, in run
rc = self.todo.doInstall()
File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/todo.py", line 1526 in doInstall
self.instLog = open(self.instLogName, "w+")
IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: "/mnt/sysimage/tmp/install.log"
How Reproducible: I was installing vers. 7 over a failed attempt at an upgrade from 6.2 -> 7. Accepted old partitions, added mont point names
and chose not to format the partitions.
Steps to Reproduce:
I can't explain why this is happening. The installer is trying to create a new
file, called "install.log". This file will contain a log of the actions that
the installer took. But it can't create this file for some reason. Is there
any space left on the device?
