Description SI Reasoning 1999-01-16 08:47:58 UTC
I have had a problem with my new Chembook 7400 laptop
(which is actually an Asus Grandio F7400.) During an ftp
install with redhat linux 5.2 I get three files that get
the "execution of script failed". Dev, makedev and
linuxconf rpms are the only ones that fail but they
consistently do. Since the dev rpm deals with devices, it
prevents me from doing a floppy install disk, as well as
installing lilo so the whole installation stays stuck.
Components of the 7400 can be found at
further info about this laptop can be found at

I have also done a search of newsgroups and found a couple
of other instances of this problem (although I don't know
if the same files were the issue). Both machines were
different than mine though.

Comment 1 SI Reasoning 1999-01-16 08:51:59 UTC
First file to get the above error during installation. It is possible
that the other two errors are in response to this one.

Comment 2 SI Reasoning 1999-01-16 08:53:59 UTC
The dev rpm is the rpm that is the first to get the error message
during the installation.

Comment 3 Aleksey Nogin 1999-01-16 11:32:59 UTC
This is a duplicate of #189 (which was closed as "WORKSFORME" and
should probably be reopened).

Comment 4 Jeff Johnson 1999-01-17 16:38:59 UTC
*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 189 ***

Comment 5 SI Reasoning 1999-01-17 17:41:59 UTC
Does this mean that this is considered resolved and closed? Or does
this mean that all comments and work will be done on bug #189? If so,
will I be receiving email updates on the status of this bug as I have
been with bug #848?

Comment 6 Aleksey Nogin 1999-01-19 08:15:59 UTC
Yes, all comments and work will be done on bug #189. As the system is
setup now, you would not receive any e-mails when #189 would be
updated, but you should have been added to its CC list. I added
description of this problem to bug report #807
