Description Sudheer K Parasker 2003-01-02 11:40:49 EST
Description of problem:
Anaconda fails while trying to 'Autopartition' a new hard-disk.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RedHat Linux 8.0 Images

How reproducible:
Always! (Even though the there are NO *docs* image files in the directory)

Steps to Reproduce:
1. New Hard disk (120GB), created Primary DOS Partition only using full 
available space and formatted it.
2. Copied image (psyche*1.iso thru psyche*5.iso) and MD5sum into a 
directory 'redhat'.
3. Started to load using a floppy disk created using rawrite.
4. Used 'linux text noprobe' at 'boot' prompt.
5. I select 'Server' installation.
6. It goes properly upto where we need to select 'partitioning tools' out 
of 'Autopartition' or 'Disk Druid' or 'fdisk'.
7. The problem occurs when I select either of the methods.

(After this the drive becomes non-readable where-in I have to redo fdisk and 
format it)

Actual results:
Fails saying
       Traceback(most recent call last)
        File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 694 in?
        intf.run(id, dispatch, configFileData)


Expected results:


Additional info:
I Have HP_Pavilion System, Intel Pentium II, 400 Mhz Processor, 13GB Primary 
HDD, 192 MB RAM. 
Added a western digital 120 GB HDD and am trying to use this hard disk 
exclusively for Linux.

Were you trying to install to the partition containing the ISO images by chance?
