Description of problem:
While upgrading from 7.0 to 7.1, all packages installed without errors.
The "Performing post install configuration" went all the way across to
100% then stopped.
VC3 has only one line that may be a related error:
* did not run inetdconvert because no inetd.conf.rpmsave found
VC4 has no errors. VC2 is still usable.
That error message is curious, but I don't think it would cause the install to
freeze. There's a return call in the code that should allow the install to
if not os.access (self.instPath + "/etc/inetd.conf.rpmsave", os.R_OK):
log("did not run inetdconvert because no inetd.conf.rpmsave found")
I don't know what could be causing the system to hang, though. Are you able to
type any commands on VC2?
All commands on VC2 seem to be functional. I have left the install hung
because I'm not sure if I can recover and continue or if I have to somehow
msw, does this look like the Heisen bug that you found?
yea, this would apply back to 7.1 as well.
I think if you were to try the install again, things might work. This
particular bug was very rare and hard to reproduce. msw has committed a patch
that will keep this from happening in future releases. Do things work ok when
you try again?
I did rerun the install, and my system is working great now.
Ok. Glad to know things are working now. Please reopen this report if you see
this behavior in a future release. This should be fixed now. Thanks for your
