Description Mark McClelland 2002-12-31 08:16:10 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2) Gecko/20021203

Description of problem:
When booted from Phoebe CD #1 (in rescue mode or by switching to tty0 during
install), the "mknod" command doesn't work. The problem seems to be a missing
Python component.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot from install CD into rescue mode
2. Proceed through various anaconda screens until you get to a shell propmt
3. Run mknod

Actual Results:  
-/bin/sh-2.05b# mknod
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/mknod", line 4, in ?
    import isys
ImportError: No module named isys

Expected Results:  When booted from RH 8.0 install CD:
-/bin/sh-2.05b# mknod
usage: mknod <path> [b|c] <major> <minor> or mknod <path>
