From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0)

Description of problem:

This is a bootable CD that I created to do a site specific Redhat 7.3 install.

It all goes well. CD boots fine, install beings. Partitions go fine, all rpms 
get installed fine. It then goes into the post-install phase and gets hung up 
on this error.

Traceback (innermost last):
 File "/usr/bin/anaconda", liine 633, in ?, dispatch, configFileData)
 File "/usr/lib/anaconda/", line 429, in
  (step, args) = dispatch.currentStep()
 File "/usr/lib/anaconda/", line 250,
in currentStep
  args = self.bindArgs(stepInfo[1])
 File "/usr/lib/anaconda/", line 232,
in bindArgs
  for arg in args:
TypeError: loop over non-sequence

Please help =) I need to get this working to convince my company to switch to 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot off my cd =)

Actual Results:  I get the error I included in the description and the 
installation fails.

Expected Results:  
The post install should have finished and should have a happy linux box.

Additional info:

Please please help me =)

Could you please attach the complete traceback you receive.

Comment 2 Jon Hudson 2003-02-20 00:09:25 UTC

So sorry. Turned out to be an error on my part. Turned out that "info" 
and "kudzu" needed to be installed for it to work.

Thanks much,
