Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 8975
Python caused problems
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:54 EDT
This happend when I try to install RH6.1 from my hardisk.
After "Read Package Information..."
The system shows:
File "usr/bin/anaconda/real",line225,in ?
File "/tmp/lib/python1.5/site-packages/text.py,line 1000,in run
/lib/python1.5/site-packages/textw/packages.py",line 10,in __call__
File "tmp/lib/python1.5/site-packages/harddrive.py",lie45,in readHeaders
File "/tmp/lib/python1.5/site-packages/isys.py",line8 in umount
SystemError:(16,'Device or resource busy')
I tried several times to configure RH6.1 but this problem still exist.
Since I successfully installed SuSe6.1 and BluePoint on the same machine,
I am sure this is not a compatability problem or configuration problem.
Fortunately I download before I decide to buy RH. Last week one of my
classmates persuaded my badly to buy his RH6.1 Deluxe at half price
although he bought three days ago. I think he meet the same problem of
this installation bug.
Please try again with the updated boot disk and the installer updates disk
available from our web site at
There were quite a few kinks to be worked out in the installer, and this may
well have been one of them.
A quick glance at the harddrive.py file in the install tree shows that it might
also have problems if you have files in RedHat/RPMS that aren't actually RPM
packages. If you have a file named TRANS.TBL or any ls-lR or ls-lR.gz files in
there, I suggest you delete them.
