Description -M 2002-09-24 04:48:29 EDT
Description of problem:
Install Exited Abnormally. CD PASSES Mediacheck.

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

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Actual Results:  (anaconda:89):Gnome-Canvas-CRITICAL**:file gnome-canvas-path-
def.c:line 1142 (gnome-canvas-path-def-any-closed):assertion 'path !=NULL' 

Install Exited Abnormally appears then
machine enters halt

Expected Results:  Successful Installation

Additional info:

Chosing not install gnome seems to have worked around the problem. I wanted to 
submit this to the Null section but did not see it in the list. So here it is 
under 7.3.

This message is just a warning and is harmless.

At what point during the install process did it abort?

Somewhere in the package installation.
Comment 5 -M 2002-10-01 03:39:00 EDT
Moving on to 8.0 release.
Comment 6 Michael Fulbright 2002-10-02 15:22:15 EDT
This usually indicated a problem with the install source containing the packages
you omitted, in this case the GNOME packages.

I have the same problem. This is for Red Hat 8.0 installation. I was able to reproduce it 5 times. It 
happens after all the packages are installed and before the boot disk creation screen (I guess 
that's the next step looking at the installation guide) comes up. I have changed my selection of 
packages hoping to avoid the problem but with no luck.
The actual error is:
GnomeCanvas-CRITICAL **: file gnome-canvas-path-def.c: line 1142 
(gnome_canvas_path_def_any_closed): assertion 'path != NULL' failed

# repeat the above 
message several times

install exited abnormally
sending termination 
# etc.

Oh, I forgot to mention that I've checked the CD media and they are fine. In addition, I was able to 
install 7.2 and 7.3 previously without problem.

Can somebody reopen the bug? Do I have to create a new bug instead?
