Description of problem:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/user/bin/anaconda", line 384, in ?
from installclass import DefaultInstall
File "/user/lib/anaconda/installclass.py", line 27, in ?
from constants import BETANAG
ImportError: cannot import name BETANAG
install exited abnormally

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


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Insert CD and/or boot disk
2.Wait for Future domain driver to load /or load manually
3.Anaconda crashes
	

Actual Results:  Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/user/bin/anaconda", line 384, in ?
from installclass import DefaultInstall
File "/user/lib/anaconda/installclass.py", line 27, in ?
from constants import BETANAG
ImportError: cannot import name BETANAG
install exited abnormally

Expected Results:  RedHat 8.0 should load?

Additional info:

Motherboard is a Asus P2L97-DS with 2 266MHz Slot 1 Pentium II processors. I 
have 128 Megs of DRAM on it. There is an ATI AGP rage pro 128 video card with 8 
Megs of ram. There are 3 pci cards: A Future domain 36C70 SCSI card, a Kingston 
KNE40BT 10BaseT ethernet card which uses the tulip driver, and a Yamaha YMF724F-
V. There are no ISA cards in this machine. I have tried: linux noapic noprobe 
mem=128M; linux text noapm; linux text noprobe; and all variations of the above 
I could think of. I think it may have to do with either SMP or leftover beta 
testing code. This machine runs with RedHat 7.0 SMP with apm disabled.

Could you please verify your media following the instructions at
http://rhlinux.redhat.com/anaconda/mediacheck.html?

Comment 2 Need Real Name 2002-10-18 22:34:21 UTC
Sorry I didn't mention it before, checking the media was the first thing that I 
tried. It Checked out fine. I also tried booting it on an old computer (pentium 
166MHz VX motherboard) and it installed through the anaconda section (bombed 
out later though).

Comment 3 Michael Fulbright 2002-10-24 18:58:30 UTC
How much RAM is on your system?

Comment 4 Need Real Name 2002-10-25 23:28:31 UTC
Is I said in my original additional info statement there are 128 Megs of Ram.

Comment 5 Michael Fulbright 2002-10-30 22:46:05 UTC
This error is definately a problem reading the data from the CD.

You may want to consider trying to do a NFS, FTP or HTTP install from another
machine if you continue to have this problem with the CD media.
