This is my first time to install Red Hat which I only tried the free evaluation version so that I won’t waste anything while I am still learning and getting to know it. I am not knowledgeable about this so please I need anybody’s help. I know I just had to follow the installation prompts like installing it using a DVD and choosing where to save the program files. It just went normal when suddenly I got this error message that says ‘unable to read group information from repositories. This is a problem with the generation tree.’ What does it mean, I’m completely lost in this kind of issue, please tell me how to make this work.
Red Hat: Problem with Generation Tree
This is a bug in RedHat Linux. It has been reported and updates are being generated to fix it.
If you haven't configured anything, this uses default settings, it selects the partition layout and occupy all the memory of the hard drive. You cannot also reset the settings and try a different one because you can only exit the installer or retry the installation with the same settings as of the one with this error.
This gets the drive reformatted but did not install anything on the drive. This only means that the problem is on the installer version or your installer not on the system or the setting configuration during the installation.
