Unhandled exception in anaconda crashes upgrade of RH9 to FC2



Hi All,

After a few issues trying to upgrade my RH9 to FC2 I have finally come
to an impasse because anaconda keeps crashing with an unhandled
exception.  This occurs when trying to detect the existing RH9
installation.  Hopefully someone can help.

Upgrade attempts:
1) Upgrade fails to detect my AdvanSys SCSI adapter.

2) Discovering that the AdvanSys driver in kernel 2.6 is not up to date
   and FC2 doesn't support it.  2 methods of trying to load it by hand
   from installation CD 1 fail.  Finally find:
      Advansys SCSI Cards and Fedora Core Linux
      http://www.city-fan.org/ftp/contrib/drivers/advansys/
   and am using a CD containing advansys-fc2-boot.iso to boot and
   start the upgrade from FC2 install CD 1.  Now the upgrade fails to
   detect my existing RH9 installation and only offers to install a new
   FC2 installation.

3) Boot with 'linux upgradeany' command.  When detecting my existing
   RH9 installation anaconda reports the unhandled exception.

4) Remove /etc/redhat-release and boot again with 'linux upgradeany'.
   anaconda now finds an unknown Linux distribution to upgrade.  As
   soon as [Next] is clicked anaconda reports the same unhandled
   exception.

5) Impasse.

Other relevant facts:
Hardware is a PC with an Athlon CPU and 1 GB RAM.
Installation CD passes checksum test.
/dev/sda2 contains / FS of my RH9 installation.
In the anaconda dump below the local variable desc contains 32 NULs.
They are just converted to (^) and (@) for display in this email.


Thanks in advance,
Mike
