Description Sebastian Vahl 2007-12-14 05:12:36 EST
Description of problem: When starting liveinst on a livecd it stops after you accept that this is a test release. The graphical error: An error occurred when attempting to load an installer interface component className = KeyboardWindow The output in a terminal: $ liveinst FATAL: Module md not found. /usr/sbin/liveinst: line 40: /usr/sbin/swapoff: No such file or directory No volume groups found Probing for video card: nVidia Corporation NV17 [GeForce4 MX 440] 11:01:55 Starting graphical installation... No module named firstboot_module_window Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): anaconda-126.96.36.199-1 How reproducible: ever Steps to Reproduce: 1. create a livecd from current rawhide 2. boot the cd 3. start "liveinst" in a terminal Actual results: liveinst fails Expected results: liveinst works Additional info: It seems that after the initial start of liveinst my keyboard layout was set to german. The locale in the kickstart for the livecd was en_US.UTF-8. I haven't manually set this.

I've grabbed anaconda-188.8.131.52-1 from koji and updated it on a running livecd. Same error.
Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2007-12-14 07:59:24 EST
This is due to the changes in system-config-keyboard. Chris -- I thought you had a fix for this.
Comment 3 Sebastian Vahl 2007-12-17 06:15:26 EST
The used version of system-config-keyboard is 1.2.11-3.fc8

Created attachment 289803 [details] Rework to support new firstboot module system Attached is a new version of keyboard_gui.py which should work with the new firstboot in rawhide. I've tested this briefly as a firstboot module and as a stand-alone program, but I have not yet gotten a chance to test it with anaconda due to no images today. More testing would be appreciated.
Comment 5 Sebastian Vahl 2007-12-18 05:04:07 EST
I've copied the file into a running livecd into the normal place and started liveinst. The graphical error is the same, but in the terminal a new error is shown: cannot import name KeyboardWindow If I start anaconda directly with "anaconda --method=livecd" I'm seeing the keyboard selection. But when I select one and hit "next" the same error occurs. anaconda-184.108.40.206-1
Comment 6 Jeremy Katz 2008-01-01 13:30:41 EST
svahl -- you also need a newer anaconda (.12) But even with that, things don't quite work. Unfortunately both firstboot and anaconda have a module named 'constants' and both are just (ab)using the python path to get their modules available. Thus, you only get the anaconda constants module and not the firstboot one. Given that firstboot is providing an API, it probably makes sense to have it available as the 'firstboot' module and then it'd be firstboot.constants and things would be happy.
Comment 7 Chris Lumens 2008-01-02 17:53:38 EST
firstboot has been updated and rebuilt in order to provide a real python module. This will require changing my new keyboard module above to not append /usr/share/firstboot and also to import firstboot.whatever instead.
Comment 8 Chris Lumens 2008-01-23 11:55:20 EST
This should be fixed in today's rawhide.
