Description thunderball 1998-11-10 06:14:02 UTC
I've copied base and RPMS directory to \RedHat\ on a
FAT16/FAT32 Partition (I've tried both).
During installation: After entering the path where to find
the installation files and the Partition - the install prog
claims it does not find the file
The problem is that the install prog does not search in
\RedHat\base but in /tmp/rhmask/../RedHat/base (or a little
bit different). This is not too severe, but after that the
install prog does not find the directories for installation.
Thus an installation is not possible.

Same problem down here.

I have been trying to update my Red Hat Linux 8 with the Red Hat Network, and
keep getting this message.  Is there any way that this can be fixed?  Just to
let you know, I am running a dual hard drive configuration.  On the first hard
drive, I have Microsoft Windows 98 SE, and on the second hard drive, I have Red
Hat Linux 8.  I recently had to rebuild both systems due to a WinPoEt software
difficulty with Win98 SE.  I have installed Red Hat Linux before, done the Red
Hat Network, and never had any troubles like this.  Just the other day when I
tried to update the Red Hat Linux 8 through the Up2Date, I had another related
problem.  I usually check all when I do the update.  I got an error that it was
having troubles with the Canna server.  So, I didn't check the boxes for the
Canna server today, and got this error 17.
