RedHat 6.2: bootnet.img/DHCP/NFS

RedHat 6.2: bootnet.img/DHCP/NFS

Post by Dimitri Papadopoulo » Sun, 31 Dec 1899 09:00:00


I am trying to kickstart install RedHat 6.2 via DHCP/NFS.
I use the latest bootnet.img diskette.

I give the location of the kickstart file, I am asked for an
installation language, keyboard type, then SCSI drivers are loaded,
and finally:

Could not find platform independent libraries <prefix>
Could not find platform dependent libraries <exec_prefix>
Consider setting $PYTHONHOME to <prefix>[:<exec_prefix>]
'import exceptions' failed; use -v for traceback
Warning! Falling back to string-based exceptions
'import site' failed; use -v for traceback
Traceback (innermost last):

    import sys, os, signal
ImportError: No module named os
install exited abnormally
sending termination signals...done
sending kill signals...done
disabling swap...
unmounting filesystems...
you may safely reboot your system

What could be going wrong?
Has anybody ever succeeded in using the bootnet.img diskette?



1. Screen blanks with RedHat 6.0 bootdisk (bootnet.img)

Hello everyone!

I have a very strange problem... I have a P100 working beautifully as my
firewall, running Redhat 5.2.

Now I just got my hands on another 1.6GB harddisk, so I thought I would try
and install RedHat 6.0 on it.

I made the bootdisk (dd if=bootnet.img of=/dev/fd0), I booted, pressed enter
for a standard install, it started booting, and after a few seconds, my
screen just blanked! It powered down like you selected some out-of-range
setting or something...

Strange thing is: the 5.2 bootdisk works ok!

Any ideas? Floppydrive broken? Known bootdisk problem?
