Description of problem:
Installing RHL 8.0 on machine with RHL7.2. As I was proceeding through the
installation I noticed I had to re-plug my mouse. Essentially, I had a new USB
Logitech Wheeled MouseMan plugged - by means of an adaptor - into the round
port (PS2?); the idea being to keep the USB port free for a memory device.
Unfortunately, the menu options during install only allowed "Logitech Mouseman
(Wheel) USB". I thought that telling the computer I had a USB mouse would
confuse it since, as a matter of fact it was not plugged to the USB port but to
the PS2(?) port, so I unplugged it and plugged it back into the USB port. Then
I though I should not be messing with the hardware during the install so I
decided to quit - by pressing 'ctrl-Alt-Backspace' - and start all over again.
Upon reboot, and before I got to the graphical part of the instalation, I got
the following text (see attached) and the system shut down.
I believe some file has been corrupted and, becausue I already have RHL7.2
installed, everytime I try to instal RHL8.0 the same file gets picked up and
causes the crash. I reinstalled RHL7.2 with no problems hoping that would
clear the file. Yet when I tried to install RHL8.0 I got the same problem
again. I have also tried text based installing with identical results.
As you may have guessed by now I am a complete newbie. What can I do?
