Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 98592
crash on installation
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:55:29 EDT
Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.during installation acidentally hit the mouse twice fairly almost instantly
right when it's all done collecting information and ready to install
2.reboot and install RHL9
3.cry cause it complains about bad blocks on the drive (which currently holds a
bootable/usable ext3 partition with RHL7)
4. do I HAVE to get new hard drive? that drive is root / (~35 gig) everything
except /boot is on there. any suggestions would be appreciated.
5. I d/l RHL9 ftp (thanks)
6. the crash said to send the error message to you guys
7. damn i gotta reboot to read the floppy in Linux. will send report in another
submission (hopefully the floppy is not bad--windows complains it is unformatted)
8. this is not a critical error (other than install program crash) as I was able
to reboot and install up to the bad blocks issue. I understand this isn't tech
support option nor do I get tech support with d/l but any ideas short of a
new harddrive would be appreciated.
I am sorry, but bugzilla is for reporting bugs and not for installation support.
I'd suggest a badblocks test.
