Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 98625
Exception during install
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:55:30 EDT
Description of problem:
The install crashed whilst tryin gto use the graphical installer.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Choose custom install
2. Choose components
3. Start install
exception box pops up.
umm.. no crash? a successful install ;o)
Please attach the contents of the traceback file written out by the error dialog.
I tried to save the traceback to floppy, but it won't save, so I gave up. I
started this report and waited while I went through the installer again, but it
just doesn't access the floppy to save the traceback...
...and no, I'm not copying down all tha text manually. Sorry.
Unfortunately there isn't enough information here to figure out how its failing.
What are the last 5 lines of the traceback?
I can't get the traceback up again as the sytem is now running quite happily
after I chose a different set of options and then used the package manager to
get it how wanted it, and I don't fancy risking messing it up as I'm still
What I do remember though was that the traceback messages were all related to
the gui (lots of mentions of gnome) and the final one was an unable to allocate
memory error. (may have been from a malloc(), but I'm not 100% cetain).
I apoligise for being a pain as no doubt you want to fix this, but I'm still a
newbie and opening the hood is as far as I've got, I'm still working out how to
set things up, and I don't want to risk what I have thus far.
This should be fixed in Red Hat Linux 9.
