Created attachment 90672 [details] Bug report from installation process. Attachment contains the bug report thrown out by the installation process.

Its appears the partitioning on /dev/hdc did not quite work out. How did you partition this device?
Comment 3 Need Real Name 2003-03-21 00:57:43 UTC
/dev/hdc is an IBM 120GB partitioned into 20+40+60G ext2 chunks for data storage only. These details are available in the attached bug report. Notice that /dev/hdc3 doesn't have a filesystem on it yet, but is targeted for an ext2. The actual 8.0 installation is on the /dev/hda. Also, text installation doesn't throw up the exception, given the same installation params.
Comment 4 Need Real Name 2003-03-21 01:03:56 UTC
Note: 'hdc' was partitioned (cfdisk on Slackware) long before the installation. It just happens to be around on this system for RedHat's use (if necessary).
Comment 5 Michael Fulbright 2003-04-02 20:15:41 UTC
Could you try using fdisk to partition /dev/hda if you haven't already?
Comment 6 Need Real Name 2003-04-03 04:23:13 UTC
Actually, I wouldn't be able to help you there since I had already installed the distribution using the text only version (same params. as the GUI by the way). I had performed the text installation an additional 2 times with different params., one of which included the fdisk options. I could have re- tried fdisk with GUI if it was a couple of weeks ago. Sorry.

Glad to hear you have it working. Let us know if you have additional issues.
Comment 8 Need Real Name 2003-04-07 21:01:45 UTC
The GUI installation still won't work. Repeatedly. Do you still want to leave it closed ?
