Centos bug report


I installed version 5.2 successfully three times. However, I have been trying to create a dual boot with Debian. I fist installed CENTOS then made the mistake of telling Debian to create it's own Grub loader.

Each time I have rebuilt the system I repartition.
the partitions are a simple

hda1 2 gig swap
hda2 /centos root
hda3 /debian root

I try to install centos first but now half way through is giving me a lot of errors which I cannot copy and paste for you. Is there a way I can do that in an email. Otherwise I have to spend hours typing it out for you. Here are a few lines of it.

***************************************************************************

An unhandled exception has occurred. This is most likely a bug. Please save a copy of the detailed exception and file a bug report against anaconda at http://bugs.centos.org

Switching consoles with CTRL+ALT+Fn (n between 1 and 6) should show you output for shell, X, debugging, messages, et cetera. Most of those lines are also in logs on the system (if processes have any open). For instance running 'pgrep -lf anaconda' (or just python) should show you the PIDs and processes. Using those PIDs with 'lsof -n -p singlePIDtocheck -a -d1-100' should show the logfiles it has opened. Copying those, output of 'dmesg', messages and whatever you need (/root/anacdump.txt?) to removable media, over the network or to a printer could get you what you need to post. Maybe it would also be good to know if this happens only in text mode, GUI mode, with default package selections or custom ones, if you only install core packages, if you have exotic hardware (like DELL DRACs) or (network) install locations, specific language or other selections and anything else that might seem even remotely interesting.

Thanks, that problem is solved now. I think it had something to do with my memory. Although memory test runs ok. But during the copying process i noticed the remaining time was staying at 40 minutes for a whole hour and a half without any progress. The suddely with the bug report.

I ran a dvd media check also returned OK. Then tried another install and it worked.

So i don't know for sure but gut feeling is telling me the installer is memory hungry. I have only 512 MB ram.
