Description y2kmvs 1999-10-28 14:20:50 EDT
Installation was attempted via NFS. The Redhat distribution
was downloaded to the NFS server (AIX 4.3.2) on 10/25/99.
The target machine is a Pentium II 400MHz IBM PC300GL with
6GB storage on /dev/hdc. /dev/hda runs NT4.0. No /dev/hdb.
Cdrom on /dev/hdd. 192 MB of RAM.

The NFS export was done at /archives/unix/redhat/i386. The
hostname of the NFS server is bookshelf.austin.ibm.com .
After the hostname, and the NFS export was specified on the
install screen, the following errors messages were observed
on the console :

/tmp/raid0.o : a module named raid0 already exists
exec : Permission denied
install exited abnormally
sending termination signals...done
sending kill signals...done
unmounting filesystems...
you may safely reboot your system now

On the alternate console (ALT+F3), the following was
observed :

* mounting nfs path
* exec of /bin/sh failed : Permission denied
* Probing buses
* finished bus probing
* found nothing
* going to insmod raid0.o (path is NULL)
* Probing buses
* finished bus probing
* found nothing
* going to insmod raid0.o (path is NULL)

(above message repeated 4 more times)

Install was successfully completed later on via http from
the same machine.
Comment 1 y2kmvs 1999-10-28 14:53:59 EDT
Forgot to add :
IBM PCI token-ring card on the target machine. The Olympic driver
inserted the machine into the ring with no errors.
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 1999-10-28 16:32:59 EDT
Make sure the permissions on the files in RedHat/instimage
are correct; (executables are executable, etc.)
Comment 3 Jay Turner 1999-10-29 13:31:59 EDT
Anytime that you get the "permission denied" message, it generally
means that you need to check the permissions as notting suggested.  I
am closing this bug.  Please reopen if checking the permissions does
not solve the problem.
