Description of problem:
When reinstalling RH7.3 on a machine I previously had problems installing RH
on, in fact ive installed the same distribution from the same installation
disks on this machine 3 times now... the machine hangs after selecting packages.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.When Anaconda starts configuring it crashes
Actual Results: An unhandled exception occurs.
Traceback (innermost last)
File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 633, in ?
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/gui.py",line 353, in run
line 2676, in mainloop
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/gui.py" line 529
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/fsset.py", line 211,
in badblock device
ValueError: Invalid literal for long(): 361428
Expected Results: Installation should have proceeded as usual.
I believe the problem might be a new Memorex Thirty-two max CDR that I am using
to read the installation disks from.
Is there anyway besides swapping the CD drive to remedy this situation?
The bad blocks check found bad blocks on the drive being tested - the installer
crashes because it did not handle that exception correctly.
