Description of problem:
When installing Redhat8.0 on a Sony Picturebook PCG-C1MV, the installer
(anaconda) will crash if it attempts to install RPMS from the second disk.
After several(five or six) tries, I finally got an install which did not require
anything on the second disk, and it installed flawlessly.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.anaconda starts to install the rpm files from cdrom
2.process goes fine until time to switch disks
3.when rpm is encountered that is on second cd, anaconda crashes
Actual Results: anaconda crashed, dropping me back to shell, and rebooting the
Expected Results: A dialog should have appeared asking me to switch to disk 2
The bug was encountered no matter how the computer was configured, how the
partition table was created (ie automatic or by hand) or what computer type you
picked(desktop, workstation server)
Have you tested your media?
Yes, I checked all of the cds, they all passed.
finally, here is the error message:
Traceback( most recent call last):

There is a diskspace error, however, after installing a bare-bones system,
booting and then installing the rest of the system from within linux, I had no
problems, and even now, after installing pretty much everything in sight, my
disks are all below 40% usage... One possible problem with this particular
computer is the 112 MB of ram, but I wouldn't think that would be a problem..
