Question Redhat 8.0 install


When installing Redhat 8.0, after booting from floppy and specifying the file in which the isos are ( yes i am installing from hard drive) i get the following error:


File "/usr/src/build/148651-i386/install/usr/lib/anaconda/image.py"
, line 344, in findIsoImages

File "/usr/src/build/148651-i386/install/usr/lib/anaconda/text.py"
, line 275, in messageWindow

File "/usr/src/build/148651-i386/install/usr/lib/anaconda/text.py"
, line 115, in __init__

File "/usr/lib/python2.2/site-packages/snack.py" , line 547, in
ButtonChoiceWindow

AttributeError: 'Nonetype' object has no attribute 'height'
install exited abnormally
sending termination signals...done

/mnt/runtime done
disabling /dev/loop1
/mnt/cdimage/ done
disabling /dev/loop2
/proc done
/dev/pts done
/tmp/ramfs done
/tmp/isodir done

you may safely reboot your system

... wonder if i can do something to avoid it crashing like that...
btw i have a athlon 1600+ w/ 256 meg ram and i use windows as primary o/s ( the isos are on this FAT partition wonder if that can help...)

would be appreciated if someone could help me out

According to the RH Manual it should be possible to install from isos on a FAT partition. Did you do a MD5 check?

I found that the cd3 is not the same file... hope this will resolve the issue.

Thanks again

I have the exact same error

with RH 9, downloaded today from linux.hiwaay.net.

Did you find any inconsistency in the files? I notice that disk1 has a different creation date from the others.
