Description of problem:
Everytime I try to upgrade my system to RH8, the installer hangs when it starts
finding packages to upgrade after making a selection in the 'Upgrade boot
loader config' screen.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start installer
2. Select Upgrade
3. Select the 'don't review pkgs' option
4. Select 'update boot loader' option, click next.
Actual Results: The installer says 'Finding pkgs to upgrade...' and hangs.
Going to the Alt-F3 tty the last msg that is displayed
says 'Using /mnt/source/RedHat/base/comps.xml'
HW info: running a p3-550 on an asus p3b-f MB with an aha2940uw scsi adapter
and 192 MB mem. HDD is a Fujitsu mae3182lp, and I hav a Sony Crx145s CDRW and
a Toshiba xm-6401ta CDROM, all drives being scsi.
Now ive also performed a media check on all the install disk, each one of them
passing. Ive also tried using the anaconda update disk image that ive seen in
bugzilla with no success also. And the installer does the same thing when
installing from either the CDRW or CDROM
i would atttach a traceback or any error msgs, but im not getting any at all.
Could you try removing /var/lib/rpm/__db* and try again?
yup, that got it, thank you very much.
