Description Jesse Keating 2008-03-06 19:17:50 UTC
After formatting the filesystem, this traceback is seen.  Install method was
nfs, using netinst.iso

anaconda 11.4.0.47 exception report
Traceback (most recent call first):
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/isys.py", line 337, in mount
    rc = _isys.mount(fstype, device, location, flags)

    isys.mount(self.anaconda.methodstr[4:], self.tree, "nfs")

Attaching the dump.

anaconda dump

Comment 2 Jesse Keating 2008-03-06 19:39:13 UTC
From debug:

p fstype, device, location, flags
('nfs', '/mnt/source', '/mnt/source', None)

up

p self.tree
'/mnt/source'

p methodstr
'file:///mnt/source'

p self.anaconda.methodstr
'nfs:/mnt/source'

So it's trying to mount /mnt/source, onto itself.  Yeah that's probably not
going to work (:

Happens with NFS ISO too.

Comment 3 Jesse Keating 2008-03-06 19:39:45 UTC
This happens both using the UI to define an install method as well as using
method= from the boot cli.

Comment 4 Chris Lumens 2008-03-07 16:25:21 UTC
This should be fixed in the next build of anaconda.

Comment 5 Jesse Keating 2008-03-07 19:51:21 UTC
Confirmed.
