Description dayton 1999-10-08 22:43:24 EDT
the bootnet.img does connect out to any website, as the ftp
address only outputs NULL as the ftp server it's connecting
Comment 1 dayton 1999-10-12 15:53:59 EDT
actuall none of the installs work right
boot.img will has problems installing from a hard drive it will not
find any directories.. though they are corrent..
and the CD will not upgrade it stops at looking for packages
Comment 2 dayton 1999-10-12 15:55:59 EDT
the Text mode comes up with an "Exception Occured" error, but it
doesn't in the graphical version
Comment 3 dayton 1999-10-12 16:02:59 EDT
the exception error is

Traceback (innermost last):
  File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 225,

     intf.run(todo, test = test)

Send a copy of your fstab, as well as output from fdisk, as there are
known problems in both areas which may be what you are seeing.
Comment 5 jjacobs 2000-01-16 18:29:59 EST
I have this same problem doing a new network install.  At the bottom of the
error message (too long to type) it says :  IOError: [Errno ftp error] 530 Login
incorrect... (this was just after entering in a user account).  I have the exact
same beginning as the aforementioned dump, but I thought this would help someone
look at the ftp login process...
Comment 6 jjacobs 2000-01-16 18:51:59 EST
I found a work-around.  After it prompts for a root password, it prompts for you
to set up a user account.  If you enter in nothing there.  It moves on.
Otherwise it does the fatal exception error noted above and fails.
