Description Neal D. Becker 1999-10-20 15:33:52 UTC
A bad entry /tmp/swap in /etc/fstab kills anacoda:

Traceback:
[...]
File "/usr/lib/python1.5/site-packages/isys.py",
line 64, in makeDevInode
return _isys.mkdevinode(name,fn)
SystemError:(2, 'No such file or directory')

The python error message doesn't even give the user a clue what's
wrong!  Luckily, I found the problem.  (I had previously had a /tmp/swap
swap file, but had removed it).
