Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 67229
Last modified: 2005-10-31 17:00:50 EST
I found this bug in two different packages of RH7.3, a standard one and a professional
1)Boot from CD1
2)press enter (or use "text" mode, the result is the same)
installation, I can see the RedHat logo on a white background
4)Then, Anaconda crashes with the
File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 503, in ?
from text import
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/text.py", line 28 in ?
from language import
ImportError: cannot import name expandlangs
These is my hardware
Asus P2B @ 112MHz (stable) - AGP2x, USB 1.1, UDMA33
PII 450 (4.0x112)
hda Quantum AS 40GB UATA100- unrelevant: I've tried to change it with another, freshly
formatted UDMA33 hard disk
hdc Philips CDRW1610 16x10x40x
hdd Philips CDD3610
AGP Matrox Mystique G200 (recognized as a Millenium G200)
PCI1 Conexant HCF
softmodem - unrelevant: I tried to remove it
PCI2 Motorola SM56 softmodem
PCI4 Pinnacle PCTV (bt848)
ISA1 none (shared with PCI4)
ISA2 Roland MPU-
(PCI1 is the nearest one to AGP)
USB Canon BJC-3000
-no SCSI, no ISDN, no Ethernet or similar stuff-
relevant BIOS settings:
1)Once it started correctly. I couldn't reproduce it.
2)if i try with the
"noprobe" option, it crashes much sooner
Please check your media as in these instructions:
I checked my media, in both the distributions (personal and professional). No errors.
Which language did you choose to install with?
I didn't choose any - installer crashes MUCH before (just after the big RedHat logo - so it isn't an X
Mediacheck does not always catch errors that can occur from CDs which are marginal.
I would recommend trying a new set of CDs, or putting the ISO images on a
harddrive and doing a harddrive based install.
I already told you (in the original message) that I've already tried TWO different CDs, shipped
with two different magazines. I'm sure it's not a CD problem.
I would recommend contacting the magazines about the CDs they are shipping.
If you have a problem with a Red Hat boxset please contact our customer support.
You can also try downloading Red Hat Linux 7.3 from an ftp mirror for free.
