Description Fernando 2002-12-18 01:43:36 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.01; Windows NT 5.0)

Description of problem:
Installing RHL 8.0 on machine with RHL7.2.  As I was proceeding through the 
installation I noticed I had to re-plug my mouse.  Essentially, I had a new USB 
Logitech Wheeled MouseMan plugged - by means of an adaptor - into the round 
port (PS2?); the idea being to keep the USB port free for a memory device.  

Unfortunately, the menu options during install only allowed "Logitech Mouseman 
(Wheel) USB".  I thought that telling the computer I had a USB mouse would 
confuse it since, as a matter of fact it was not plugged to the USB port but to 
the PS2(?) port, so I unplugged it and plugged it back into the USB port.  Then 
I though I should not be messing with the hardware during the install so I 
decided to quit - by pressing 'ctrl-Alt-Backspace' - and start all over again. 
Upon reboot, and before I got to the graphical part of the instalation, I got 
the following text (see attached) and the system shut down.

I believe some file has been corrupted and, becausue I already have RHL7.2 
installed, everytime I try to instal RHL8.0 the same file gets picked up and 
causes the crash.  I reinstalled RHL7.2 with no problems hoping that would 
clear the file.  Yet when I tried to install RHL8.0 I got the same problem 
again.  I have also tried text based installing with identical results.

As you may have guessed by now I am a complete newbie.  What can I do?

Many thanks.
