Description Richard Seibel 2001-07-08 23:02:26 UTC
Description of Problem:

I got the latest anaconda update
	(i386: ftp://updates.redhat.com/7.0/en/os/images/i386/update-disk-
and created the update disk.

At boot time, I entered linux updates

I then see:
	running anaconda - please wait
	Probing for mouse type
	.. X server started successfully
	Traceback (innermost last)
		File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 517 in ?
			extramodules = extramodules)
		File "tmp/updates/todo.py", line 344 in __init__
			log.open (serial, reconfigOnly, test)
	TypeError: not enough arguments; expected 5, got 4
	install exited abnormally
	sending termination signals..done
	sending kill signals..done
	disabling swap...
	unmounting file systems
		/mnt/source umount failed ()
	you may safely reboot your system

How Reproducible: 2/2

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download updatedisk-20001009.img
2. using fawrite, create update disk
3. boot from installation disk using "linux updates"

Actual Results:
As described above

Expected Results:
Install should continue normally

Additional Information:
I have a Dell Dimensions X266 and have recently installed a slide drive 
which I made the master. The drive is Comp-USA by Maxtor, 3.5" EIDE

I am installing Linux at home as a learning experience and am willing to 
do a re-install in the next week or so if that would help.

I'm a little confused.  The disk you downloaded is an update for Red Hat Linux
7.0, but the bug report is filed against 7.1.  Did you mean to file the bug
under 7.0 or were you trying to use the 7.0 updates disk with 7.1 (that won't work)?
