Description mamster 1999-10-09 08:23:59 UTC
I have tried to use the FTP installer to upgrade from RH6.0
to RH6.1.  I can get to the point where I am downloading
packages, but it always hangs trying to install the same
package: e2fsprogs-1.15-3.i386.rpm
The python installer will hang for approx 10 minutes and
then report an error which appears to be an FTP error.  I
have tried to independently rpm -Uvh
This works fine.  I have reviewed the other install bugs and
I have verified that I do not have an NTFS partition on the
drive.  I see 20+ packages installed and 55MB downloaded
before this bug occurs.  It's really frustrating because the
install starts over from scratch each time rather than
starting from where it left off.

RH6.0 on Intel Celeron 400
NE2K Ethernet
HD with 3 partitions: Linux Swap, Linux, FAT32 (0x0B)

Any help appreciated.
