Description David Otero 2003-06-11 20:52:28 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; .NET CLR 

Description of problem:
I am attaching the anacdump file, but basically the installation is failing 
during the post installation script with a invalid 22 argument.  Not exactly 
sure what that means.  When the machine boots it fails with a non-system disk 
or disk error message.  This machine is brand new, so I was hoping the problem 
was with my configuration.
Any help would be appreciated.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install OS with provide configuration.

Actual Results:  Everything is installed, but the machine won't boot.

Expected Results:  The machine should have booted.

Additional info:

The machine has a 36GB HD.  During the patitioning, I left 10GB or so
unalloacted.  10GB was set as a LV.

Are you activating the device eth1 during configuration?

Comment 3 David Otero 2003-06-12 19:51:10 UTC
I was configuring the machine to use a specific IP address so I setup eht0 to 
that IP address and unchecked eth1.  I did several more re-installations and 
isolated the problem to the network cards as well.  I was able to get the 
machine to boot if I enabled both of them to use DHCP, which is not what I 
want to do.  I am going to try to re-install again, this time giving eth0 an 
IP address and eht1 to use DHCP.  Will that work?

Thanks for the quick response.

I am not sure but I would recommend you try RHL 9 instead as we've fixed alot of
problems since RHL 8.
