Description zonum 1999-11-04 04:25:43 UTC
I just got RH 6,1 and also saw the Errata regarding issues with installed if there is an NTFS partition present. Since I have that, I got the following two .img files: updates-RHEA-1999:045.img boot-RHEA-1999:044.img I proceeded to boot from the floppy created by the boot-RHEA-1999:044.img file, and I used the "linux updates" command at the boot prompt. vmlinuz started loading, it completed and then it got to the section where it would say: Running /sbin/loader The CD would get accessed, but it just stays here and does NOT go any further and NEVER get asked to insert the updates floppy. If I do the same WITHOUT using "linux updates" at the boot prompt, it boots file and the installed (X version) comes up and works w/o problems, except that it has an error when doing an Upgrade because of the NTFS partition. So I am in a nbbind since the fix seems broken.

I have the same kind of problem. The installation hangs after that "Running /sbin/loader" line. But if I try without the "linux updates" command (like with "text"), the installation starts well until the anaconda/python error that has already been reported dozens of times. And I have no NTFS partitions. Is there anything to fix this?
