Can you provide the steps necessary to reproduce this behavior?  Also, I can't
read your attachments.

I upgraded one of my linux boxes from RH7.1 to RH7.2
It is a custom install on a QDI DUAL PII motherboard with two ethernet cards 
that I'll use as a gateway/firewall.
During the upgrade process there was a crash in a python script, I could debug 
it (can't do it, sorry) or I could save all the info to a floppy, that's what I 
The thing is when I submitted the bug your server gave me a sort of Oracle 
error (can't remember it) during the upload of the attachments.
Back to the office I'll look for them and try to upload again or mail them 

I reproduced the error twice, always the same, I can post the configuration of 
my box if you want (hardware, partitions, etc...)

Comment 6 Brent Fox 2001-11-01 16:42:44 EST
This bug looks like a dupe of bug #55228.  Can you try moving your cdrom to be
on the secondary IDE controller?  I'm curious to see if that helps anything.

Also, did you check the md5sum of the ISO images before you burned them?
Comment 7 Brent Fox 2001-11-01 17:09:01 EST
On second thought, I would check the md5sums first, before you go swapping the
cdrom around.
Comment 8 alle 2001-11-05 19:18:35 EST
The md5s were OK, I always check them before burning. Anyway the problem was 
the cdr I burned: I burned a new one and it worked perfectly, so no bug here :)
Comment 9 Brent Fox 2001-11-05 23:23:11 EST
Ok.  I'm glad things are working now.
