Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 57783
installing not working with exceptional error
Last modified: 2007-03-26 23:50:31 EDT
I am following SAM's Teach Yourself Red Hat Linux (7.0.1) and get an
exceptional error during installation (about 60% through 'creating
loopback file system')
file "nav/tmp/anaconda - 7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/iw/progress-gui.py", line
20 in run
file "/var/tmp/anaconda - 7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/todo.py/" line 1469 in
selffstab.py line 645 in makefilesystems (self.progresswindow,-
file "isys.py" line 78 in ddfile
there are more error messages but I can't see them because although the
mouse still moves none of the window buttons work !
I have the following setup (in Windows terms)
disk one - drive C Windows 98
disk two - drive D Win NT server
disk two - drive E Win XP
disk two - drive F FAT32 partition 10gb for my new Linux
I have tried every combination using custom and workgroup install options.
I also correctly followed the instructions for setting up
a 'partitionless' installation
labelling '/' during disk druid.
An odd thing is that the LILO configuration screen didn't appaear as
mentioned in the SAM's book.
Any ideas ?
