System failure when running graphical install
Last modified: 2006-02-21 13:49:13 EST
Description of Problem:When starting the install in graphical mode, it starts
running anaconda. Sometimes right away, sometimes after a few screens but
adventually fails the install. The system crashes, the PC is hosed. Errors:
Traceback (innermost last):
File /usr/bin/anaconda line 633 in ? intf.run (id, dispatch, configFileData)
File /usr/lib/anaconda/gui.py line 353 in run self.icw.run(self.runres,
Import error: PartitionMethodWindow
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How Reproducible:Start the install with the install #1 CD in the drive in
Steps to Reproduce:
Please check your CDs following these instructions:
All 3 install CDs are fine. I still can't run the install. This time I can't
even get as far as I did before. Right at the start it's complaining about not
finding platform independent libraries.
do you have any success running the installer in text mode?
It failed a few times even in text mode. Now I've just tried it again
in graphic mode and it installed I think part of the package. It used only CD
#1 and #2 (not #3 and not the additional ones)
Now when I reboot, everything comes up in a text mode. Not sure how to switch
to the graphic mode and not sure how to install everything else.
Which packages/groups did you choose to install?
I've chosen the basic package to install in text mode (did not do custom, just
the workstation) I was trying to install more than that, but it failes each
time I try. Especially the development package.
I'm really thinking about switching to something else at this point because
noone seems to be able to help me with this install and the answers getting
back to me are taking forever and not too helpful.
If you have any suggestions, pls try to get back to me a bit faster than before.
I'd really appreciate it.
I'm pretty sure its a CD/CD drive issue because the error you are seeing occurs
when there are problems reading from the drive.
You could try downloading the ISO images onto a hard drive partition and doing a
hard drive based install.
