I am trying to install Pardus 2007.2 in a VMWare workstation (VMWare 5.5.3 build-34685).
After copying the packages, the installer reports the following error:
cannot connect to comar
followed by a lengthy backtrace. The last lines of the backtrace are:
File "/usr/lib/pardus/pisi/api.py", line 294, in configure_pending pisi.util.join_path(pkg_path, ctx.const.files_xml)
File "/usr/lib/pardus/pisi/comariface.py", line 101, in post_install com = get_comar()
File "/usr/lib/pardus/pisi/comariface.py", line 54, in get_comar raise Error(_("cannot connect to comar"))
It forces me then to reboot the system.
Screenshots of the error are attached.
I should point out that ftp access from the machine is blocked by a firewall, so if it's trying to download information from the internet at this point, it might fail. However, I have not been given an opportunity to provide network settings at this point so I doubt this is it.
An earlier poster had similar problems in March 2007, unfortunately there was no response.
