Description Richard Steinberger 2002-05-09 17:43:49 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.0rc1)

Description of problem:
When installing RH 7.3, selecting: Gnome, KDE, Development and Games: During CD
2 ionstall, the system claims to NOT be able to find: xmms-devel, zlib-devel,
and wine.  Clicking return to retry eventually causes the warning popup messages
to go away, but the packages are apparently not installed.  At the end of the
installation, a error message is displayed: An unhandled exception has occurred.
 The net result is that the system is un-bootable.  A kernel is apparently not
installed, or at least not detected by GRUB.  This is a very serious problem.

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

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RH 7.3.  Select Gnome, KDE, Games & Development
2. Observe what happens

Actual Results:  System would not boot.

Expected Results:  Installation should have finished normally.  I have a CD with
the error messages, that the failed install created.  I do not have a working
Linux system right now, so I cannot send you what it says.

Additional info:

Please give this TOP priority ASAP.  This is a new release and potentially all
installers will be affected.

Have you tested your CDs by booting with the 'linux mediacheck' commandline?
