Description Emmanuel Seyman 2004-09-23 09:03:31 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; fr-FR; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20040922 Description of problem: Install of FC3t2 crashes after the root-password-setting page. The installation is on an ext3 partition of a drive which has another partition with a FC2 install. The only remarquable thing I did was check the "do not install grub" option (since I use the FC2 grub to double boot between the two systems). Firewall is also disabled (I don't need it). Everything else is the default, I think. After entering the root password in both text boxes and clicking on "Next", anaconda crashes with a python traceback (see attached). Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): anaconda-10.0.2-4 How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Install FC2 as described above 2. Enter root password in both text boxes 3. Click on the "Next" button 4. See program crash Actual Results: FC3t2 is not installed on the system. Expected Results: FC3t2 should be installed and testing should continue. :-) Additional info:

Created attachment 104170 [details] Python traceback produced by anaconda crash
Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2004-09-23 15:39:42 UTC
Is there a longer anacdump.txt? There's some information missing from this traceback that would be quite useful. Also, is this reliably reproducible? Was this using the DVD iso?

> Is there a longer anacdump.txt? I'm afraid not. These are the only messages I get, both on the graphical and text terminal. > Also, is this reliably reproducible? Every single time. I also tried selecting the Custom and Server profiles which make no difference. > Was this using the DVD iso? The three CD isos are in a directory on the hard drive (yet another partition). The kernel and initrd files have been copied to the /boot directory on the FC2 system. I boot with grub and select the "Hard Drive" install.
Comment 4 Jeremy Katz 2004-09-23 23:18:41 UTC
Can you verify the md5sums of your cds? And 3 cds or 4?
Comment 5 Emmanuel Seyman 2004-09-24 00:13:54 UTC
The md5sums of all 4 CDs are ok (yes, it's 4 but you only need the first 3 for the french default install). Burning to CD allows me to complete the install, using the exact same options as the "install from hard drive" option (whee!!!!). So the bug is activated only if you install from hard drive ???
Comment 6 Jeremy Katz 2004-09-24 16:17:12 UTC
If you put the fourth cd there does it work?
Comment 7 Emmanuel Seyman 2004-09-25 08:40:31 UTC
All four isos have been in the directory since day one.
Comment 8 Emmanuel Seyman 2004-10-19 22:03:31 UTC
Reproduced with FC3t3. Same error with only minor changes (build, line numbers). Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/src/build/465026-i386/install//usr/lib/anaconda/gui.py", line 789 in nextClicked self.dispatch.gotoNext() File "/usr/src/build/465026-i386/install//usr/lib/anaconda/dispatch.py", line 171 in gotoNext self.movestep File "/usr/src/build/465026-i386/install//usr/lib/anaconda/dispatch.py", line 239 in moveStep rc = apply(func, self.bindArgs(args)) File "/usr/src/build/465026-i386/install//usr/lib/anaconda/packages.py", line 156 in readPackages hdrlist = methode.readHeaders() File "/usr/src/build/465026-i386/install//usr/lib/anaconda/harddrive.py", line 155 in readHeaders if not self.discImages.has_key(h); TypeError: List objects are unhashable Booting to the rescue CD and attempting a hard drive install fails too. Again, burning the first 3 CD and installing from them is fine. 3 days before FC3t3 came out, I tried to install Red Hat Linux 9 for some legacy testing. That too failed with pratically the same error (ping me if you need the exact lines). FWIW, here's the layout of the drive: Disque /dev/hda: 60.0 Go, 60011642880 octets 255 tÃªtes, 63 secteurs/piste, 7296 cylindres UnitÃ©s = cylindres de 16065 * 512 = 8225280 octets PÃ©riphÃ©rique Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/hda1 * 1 650 5221093+ 83 Linux /dev/hda2 651 1300 5221125 83 Linux /dev/hda3 1301 1431 1052257+ 82 Linux swap /dev/hda4 1432 7296 47110612+ f W95 Ext'd (LBA) /dev/hda5 1432 7296 47110581 83 Linux
Comment 9 Emmanuel Seyman 2004-11-15 00:10:15 UTC
Installing FC3 on /dev/hda1 succeds. Installing it on /dev/hda2 gets me past the "Calculating dependencies on selected packages" dialog. Resolving as WORKSFORME
