Description of Problem:

When trying to 'upgrade existing installation' I
get the following error just after I choose my bootloader:

Traceback (innermost last):
File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 620, in ?
File "/usr/bin/anaconda/gui.py", line 350, in run
File "/usr/bin/anaconda/gui.py", line 778, in run
(6 lines deleted, because I don't want to write them down)
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/iutil.py", line 372, in setClock
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/iutil.py", line 94, in execWithRedirect
OSError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Installer 7.2 ... I got the v. 7.2 English ISO images from

How Reproducible:

Dunno.  Maybe it expects a file to be in /lib, that's not there?

Steps to Reproduce:
For me:
1. Start the installation procedure.
2. Choose 'upgrade existing installation'.
3. Choose LILO as the bootloader.
4. Boom!

Actual Results:

Dialog box with traceback.

Expected Results:

Continuation of install process, to package selection.

Additional Information:

It's been a while since I've installed any distribution on my
computer (the last was RedHat 6.x, I think), so stuff may be
missing from or added to /lib.

Please check the md5sum of the iso image(s) you downloaded. The error above
indicates they are corrupt.
