anaconda falls over when installing RH 9 on a box with no floppy drive
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:53:51 EDT
Description of problem:
when installing RH 9 on a box with no floppy drive (and floppy disabled in BIOS)
anaconda crashes when we get to the "Make boot disk" part of the install.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Could you please attach the crash output? I regularly test on a box which is
legacy-free and has no floppy controller and have not experienced any problems
so having the output would be handy.
I did want to attach crash output - but since I had no floppy I had nowhere to
save it to! I couldn't find a way to dump it to disk either - would have been
handy being able to choose a path to save it to.
I have to reinstall the same box today anyway - so assuming I get the same crash
I'll copy down the report by hand and forward it on to you.
have not been able to reinstall, and hence replicate this crash - my media is
randomly (mostly) coming up as faulty when checksummed at the start of the
install process - fairly unpredictable - suspect media issues causing failed
installs and crashes. will test further later when more time. thanks!
