Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 8544
Unable to upgrade/install from 6.0 to 6.1 on Win98 machine
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:53 EDT
I downloaded the RH6.1 RPMS and base directory on my /dev/hda1 fat32 win98
partition. On trying to install/upgrade 6.0 to 6.1, the installer
(boot-RHEA:0.44 and update-RHEA:0.45) recognizes the first fat32 partition
only and not the other ext2 and fat32 partitions after that. Then it asks
me for the update disk which I insert and then I get this message:
File "tmp/bin/anaconda.real", line 121, in ?
from todo import ToDo
File "tmp/updates/todo.py", line 9, in ?
ImportError: /tmp/updates/_balkanmodule.so: cannot read file data: No such
file or directory
install exited abnormally.....
When I don't give the linux updates option at boot: prompt, I still don't
get all the partitions on the HD and am not able to upgrade (it gives the
message that there are no existing linux partitions on the HD). So I try to
install and then it shows all the partitions on the HD! On proceeding with
the install, I get this message after entering all the password and user
File "/usr/bin/anaconda.real", line 225, in ? intf.run(todo, test=test)
File "/tmp/lib/python1.5/site-packages/text.py", line 1000, in run
rc = apply (step(), step)
5/site-packages/textw/packages.py", line 10, in __call__
On Debugging I get,
-> name = h[rpm.RPMTAG_NAME]
I have a 10 GB HD with a fat32 partition followed by ext2, swap, fat32,
fat32, ext2 partitions.
This is a known issue with 6.1 which is resolved in the latest installer
