Description of problem:
After choosing what packages I want installed, when it looks like the package
installation is about to commence, a fatal exception gets thrown, and it
instructed me to report the bug here
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start CD based install of RH 8.0 (from MD5 verified ISOs from www.freshrpms.net)
2. Choose desired packages, and..
3. When the system gets ready to do the installation, bam!
Actual Results: Dialog box comes up indicating a fatal exception has occured. I
was instructed to report the error here, which I'm doing now, and also was given
the option to dump the error log to a blank floppy. I did this, but upon
mounting the floppy in a good install of RH (7.3), there was nothing on the
floppy, thus I have nothing interesting to report.
Expected Results: The packages should have started installation from the CD
Do you remember anything from the stack trace provided by the bug report? If
not, it will be nearly impossible to say what happened.
I redid the install this morning, and today, it is installing properly. I don't
know why it bombed the two previous times, although it did at the same point
Anyhow, when the errors did occur, I did choose to have the stacktrace written
to the floppy, but the floppy appears to have nothing on it.
I suppose you'll have to call Mulder and Scully to investigate this one...
