Description of problem:
The anaconda installer crashed with an exception when it was nearly 80% done
with an upgrade from Red Hat Linux 7.1 to 7.2. The generated log file has been
attached. Early during the upgrade, the installer reported that the RPM for
time-1.7 was not found on the media. I was using an original retail Red Hat CD-
ROM. I hit the <Esc> key to allow the installer to continue without upgrading
time-1.7, and the upgrade continued without any problems until it crashed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Simply try to upgrade from 7.1 to 7.2 using original retail Red Hat Linux 7.2
CD-ROM. In chose to: (1) upgrade, (2) change from LILO to GRUB, and (3) did not
customize packages to be upgraded.
Actual Results: The RPM for time-1.7 was not found, but it did exist on the CD-
ROM. The installer proceeded past this problem, and much later on, it
encountered a fatal exception and crashed. The system was only partially
upgraded, and the boot sector still contained LILO instead of GRUB, but LILO no
longer worked and displayed "LI". I was able to boot using a boot floppy, but
many services failed at startup.
Expected Results: A smooth upgrade from 7.1 to 7.2 with GRUB replacing LILO.
