Description Telsa Gwynne 2001-07-06 14:58:18 EDT
Description of Problem:

The start of /tmp/install.log is corrupt following a laptop install
in text mode which died at the final stage but otherwise appeared to
have worked.

In bug 47147 I described a laptop install which resulted in an anaconda
crash at the end but which otherwise appeared to have worked. Looking at
/tmp/install.log I see a top line of
    Module /usr/share/fonts/install/xttfm.ttfm doesn't exist, ignored!
Then I see ^@^@^@^@^@^@ for seven screens, then without a linebreak I
find "Installing umb-scheme." and then it appears normal.

upgrade logs tend to have "The following were available but not
upgraded" at the end. I can't remember whether install logs should
have the same. There wasn't anything those. The final lines were
  Installing xml-i18n-tools.
  /usr/share/xml-i18n-tools directory created with perms 0755.
'file' tells me that /tmp/install.log is a data file.

Is all this down to the failure to complete the installer, or something
Comment 1 Matt Wilson 2001-07-09 12:10:49 EDT
installs don't print out the "following were available but not upgraded."  This
is almost certainly a packaging problem.  Please attach the full log.

Someone beat me to it, but I can't see 48423. I don't know whether the
few differences are significant or not. I suspect not, but there you are.
Apologies for delay :(
