Description of problem:
I tried installing Red Hat Linux release 8.0.92 (Phoebe) on my 32 MB Pentium/100
system (the same system on which the NFS installation failed (Bugzilla bug id #
It looked rather hopeful at first, I had a tail -f on "/var/log/vsftp.log" on
the server containing the RPM packages and saw the following line appear :

It offered to make a crash dump to floppy, which I did. I'll attach this
crashdump to this bugzilla.
Note that I - just to be sure - ftp'ed from another machine to the server
containing the RPM's using the same login/password and successfully retreived
all files in the directories "/var/exports/8.0.92/RedHat/RPMS/" and
So the FTP server on Phoebe works as advertised, so the actual problem in this

2. Put RH Phoebe CD's content on harddisk
3. Install from another machine using FTP, use non-anonymous login, point to
4. Answer couple of questions about partitioning, etc.
Actual Results: "Exception error occured" --> crashdump on floppy.
Expected Results: FTP installation should've started.

*** Bug 80737 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Fixed in python-2.2.2-8
Is there a workaround?
Alternatively, where can I get new base/* with fixed python?
fix verified in -re0106.0
the workaround is to use anonymous ftp
