Creating loopback filesystem err, I guess.!
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:48:40 EDT
I am newbie to linux and wish to make PARTITIONLESS install of Redhat Linux 7.0
my system. (I have got RH:Linux 7.0 dist, 4 CDs)
my system config is:
Pentium IV 1.7 Mhz
40Gb HDD with 4 partition all of which are FAT32
c:/ primary 7Gb /* Windows 2000*/
d:/ logical 11 gb /* empty on which i want to install linux */
creating loopback filesystem on /dev/hda5
when installing startes it goes half then system hangs .
and shows following err msg:
exception has occurred while creating filesystem on /dev/hda5 most likely a
file "var/tmp/anaconda7.0.1//usr/li/anaconda/iw/progress_gui.py",in line 20, in
file "var/tmp/anaconda7.0.1//usr/li/anaconda/todo.py",in line 1469, in
file "fstab.py",line 645, in MakefileSystems(self.progressWindow,"loopback")
file "isys.py",line 78, in ddfile os_write(fd,buf)
and probably 1 more which i could not read because system is hanged and window
When I restart in Windows i find 2GB redhat image. but of no use.!
Pls help me guys.!
You will need Red Hat Linux 8.0 to install on this system.
i have installed it on this system successfully but with the help of Partition
that is i gave up idea of PARTITIONLESS installation.!
