Description Mark T. Richardson 2002-10-16 00:02:52 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.01; Windows NT 5.0)

Description of problem:
During Installation, a message "uncaught exception" was displayed.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install with my Creative 48Xmx CDrom	reader

Actual Results:  Install process goes a little ways through and comes up with 
the same message.  Changed CDRom reader and it installs fine.

Expected Results:  Message should not have been displayed (no message shown 
when installing with a different CDrom)

Additional info:

I had similar problems while trying to install Redhat 7.3 (file kjots).  So I 
tried installing 8.0 (checked the CD's with the testing program available 
during install and all were ok).  

I repeated the install process 3 times and had the same thing happen each time.

I will supply the file anacdump.txt and my CDrom reader (I don't want it 
anymore) if needed ( send email:richarmt@flash.net)

An update disk for Red Hat Linux 8.0 is available at
http://people.redhat.com/~katzj/8.0-cdread.img that should correct this problem.
 If you download this image and place it on a floppy disk (using dd or rawrite
as with a boot disk), and then boot with 'linux updates' from the syslinux
prompt, you will be prompted to provide this disk.
