RH9 network install crashes
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:55:30 EDT
Description of problem:FTP-style network install on LAN results
in python2.2: rpmte.c:518 rpmteColorDS: Assertion 'ix < Count' failed.
This is after FS formatting while lokong at RPMs on CD#1.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: completely reporoducible - even with different
choices up to time of error (package selection, disk layout)
Steps to Reproduce:
1.boot pc from floppy, use FTP install, use driver floppy for NIC
2.configure 192.168 network and specify FTP server
3.disk layout, s/w set (tried both workstation or desktop)
install exited abnormally -- received signal 6. Alternate VT says finally
"* moving (1) to step installpackages"
Expected results: install should proceed through package installation
How did you create the file layout on the ftp server which is to act as the
installation source? It looks like a data corruption error. FTP installs are
known to work.
data corruption confirmed - thanks
