Created attachment 356790 [details] Attached traceback automatically from anaconda.
Comment 2 Boleslaw Ciesielski 2009-08-08 16:49:49 EDT
I was installing Fedora 11 to an iSCSI target. The error happened at the end of the installation.
Comment 3 Hans de Goede 2009-08-09 10:06:56 EDT
Hmm, this is rather funky, as the error is: "/sbin/new-kernel-pkg: No such file or directory" Which means that grubby did either not get installed at all, or not properly. Looking at the logs, I see: Installing grubby-6.0.87-1.fc11.i586 And no errors, related to grubby, I do see lots of other errors like these though: warning: %post(glib2-2.20.4-1.fc11.i586) scriptlet failed, exit status 127 And like these: error: %pre(avahi-0.6.25-3.fc11.i586) scriptlet failed, exit status 127 error: install: %pre scriptlet failed (2), skipping avahi-0.6.25-3.fc11 This is likely the cause of the "/sbin/new-kernel-pkg: No such file or directory" Error, either bash (it is a bash script) or one of the libraries bash needs did not get installed properly. Also judging from the grubby version you are using, you've added the updates repository during the installation. This is *not* supported, please do not do this, instead run yum update after install. Can you please retry without the updates repository enabled, that will most likely make this issue go away.
Comment 4 Boleslaw Ciesielski 2009-08-09 14:25:39 EDT
You're right, I reran the install without the updates repo and indeed I didn't get the error. Sorry for the noise. But if adding updates during the install is not supported then how come it is offered during the install as an option (just a check box at that)?
Comment 5 Hans de Goede 2009-08-10 02:20:44 EDT
(In reply to comment #4) > But if adding updates during the install is not supported then how come it is > offered during the install as an option (just a check box at that)? A very good question, well mainly because: 1) People were asking for it 2) They were doing it anyways with the option to manually add repo's But I guess we need to make clear that this is not necessarily a good idea (as your experience shows) and maybe even remove the option again altogether. I'll discuss this in the anaconda / installer team.

*** Bug 519350 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Comment 7 Eric Smith 2009-10-07 13:53:29 EDT
I disagree that bug 519350 is a dup of this one. I experienced the failure in bug 519350 by doing a net install *without* enabling the updates repo.
Comment 8 Bug Zapper 2010-04-28 05:38:22 EDT
This message is a reminder that Fedora 11 is nearing its end of life. Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 11. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '11'. Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 11's end of life. Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 11 is end of life. If you would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version, please add a comment here and someone will do it for you. Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes bugs or makes them obsolete. The process we are following is described here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping
Comment 9 Bug Zapper 2010-06-28 10:02:51 EDT
Fedora 11 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2010-06-25. Fedora 11 is no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug. If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
