Comment 1 Brent Fox 2001-11-06 04:37:17 UTC
Was there more to the traceback?  It seems like there should have been more data

Comment 2 David 2001-11-06 04:52:14 UTC
that was the entire traceback
I did a new install on the previus box, so will not be able to reproduce it
but I have 2 other boxes which are of the same upbringing I will be upgradine 
them shortly

Comment 3 David 2001-11-06 23:26:29 UTC
On this I read this may occur in some systems where links to /tmp are symbolic
on all my system /tmp has been mover to a different partition, 
this may, as least give yuou someting to go by

Comment 4 Brent Fox 2001-11-07 19:55:20 UTC
Yes, if /tmp is a symlink, this will cause the installer trouble.

Comment 5 Brent Fox 2001-11-07 19:55:58 UTC
msf, you've dealt with this in the past.  What would you recommend to him?

Comment 6 Brent Fox 2001-11-08 20:04:44 UTC
Can you attach your /etc/fstab file and the output of 'ls -l /'?
