From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.0rc2) Gecko/20020618 Netscape/7.0b1 Description of problem: When clicking next after setting up the partition table, an unhandled exception is reported. I am trying to keep an ext2 partition during a new install, that could be the problem. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Choose Partition with DiskDruid during the install. 2. Delete most existing partitions and add an LVM. 3. Click next. Actual Results: I get an error message, then the system reboots. Expected Results: A new partition table with an LVM should be created.

Is this a CD based install? Have you run the mediacheck?
Comment 2 Jim Wiedman 2002-07-30 19:19:22 UTC
Yes, it was a CD based install and I did run the CD check. When I completely deleted all partitions and started again, it worked just fine. I haven't tried to partition with a preexisting ext2 now that the latest beta has been released, but I will try to reproduce the error.
Comment 3 Jim Wiedman 2002-07-30 19:58:32 UTC
I reinstalled RedHat 7.1, then installed the latest beta version keeping the 7.1 version intact (adding an LVM and ext3 partitions). The error was not reproduced. I don't know if the problem was fixed with the most recent beta, or if there was something wrong with my partition table or original install disk.
Comment 4 Jim Wiedman 2002-07-30 20:18:20 UTC
I just tried to load Limbo again (leaving the 7.1 install). This time, unlike the second time I tried, I deleted old partitions in DiskDruid (but not all the partitions) and created new ones including an LVM. Another exception occured. The message is: Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/lib/anaconda/gui.py", line 613, in nextClicked self.setScreen() File "/usr/lib/anaconda/gui.py", line 779, in setScreen exec s File "<string>", line 1, in ?

This is almost certainly CDs which are marginal so they work sometimes and dont other times.
Comment 6 Jim Wiedman 2002-08-14 13:15:25 UTC
If this is a poor CD creation: 1) The disk check utility is not working because it reports all my CDs in good working order. 2) Two different CD burners created bad disks where the only problem created was with the partitioning program.
