Description David Balažic 2000-02-21 06:27:50 EST
I encountered a crash whil installing in gfx mode from local CDROM.
Selected 'Custom insatallation' , selected 'select individual packages'.
The screen 'Installing packages' appears and a window saying 'Preparing for
install' then it hangs.
Debug message on vt1 is :
failed to open
/mnt/sysimage/var/lib/anaconda-rebuilddb950959401/packages.rpm:No such file
or directory

Exception in thread Thread_3:
Traceback (innermost last):
  File "/usr/lib/python1.5/threading.py", line 376, in __bootstrap
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/iw/progress.py", line 16 in run
    rc = self.todo.doInstall()
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/todo.py", line 1081, in doInstall
    db = rpm.opendb(1,self.instPath)
rpm.error: cannot open
