Can you please test again with a later version of RHEL6? The string "can not be run" is not in anaconda anymore, and we believe this issue to be solved.
Where would I be able to get a later version of RHEL6? I'm using the ISO that is available from: ftp://ftp.redhat.com/pub/redhat/rhel/beta/6/x86_64/iso/
I don't see any later version than the April 14 ISO.
Your support representative should be able to help you out with that information, as I don't really know what's available and when. If you don't have a support representative, you'll probably have to wait for an RC or similar to come out.
This is beta.......why do I need a support rep to access.. how about updating the beta site. Thanks in advance. You ask us to test the beta, but then we have to jump through hoops to obtain?
Beta2 appears to fix this.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.0 is now available and should resolve
the problem described in this bug report. This report is therefore being closed
with a resolution of CURRENTRELEASE. You may reopen this bug report if the
solution does not work for you.
