Description Carl Roth 2010-09-22 13:55:30 EDT
Description of problem:

Anaconda fails in setupLoggingFromOpts; it has not imported the 'storage' module in time to configure its 'anaconda_log'.

The error looks something like this:

  Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 555, in <module>
    File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 273, in setupLoggingFromOpts
      anaconda_log.setHandlersLevel(storage.storage_log.logger, level)
  NameError: global name 'storage' is not defined

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Anaconda 14.17.4, as included in the 14-RC3 installer bits.

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. PXE-boot a system using the RC3 'install.img' stage2 image.  There may be other avenues to exercise this bug too.
Actual results:

Expected results:

Additional info:

See /usr/bin/anaconda:273 (I'm looking at it in git).  It tries to configure logging w.r.t. the storage module before that module has been imported.

It looks like this bug exists in git too.  For the time being I'll fix it by monkey-patching the imports in updates_disk_hook.py.

This was discussed at the 2010-10-01 blocker review meeting. We agreed that this does not meet the criteria to be a release blocker (setting 'loglevel' is not covered in them), but should be accepted as a nice-to-have bug.
Comment 2 Chris Lumens 2010-10-01 13:18:26 EDT
Easy fix, committed to F14 branch.  dlehman can decide if he wants to take it for whatever branch he's doings builds from.

Carl, are you able to test with F14 final TC1 - http://alt.fedoraproject.org/pub/alt/stage/14.TC1.1/ - to confirm that this is fixed? Thanks.

Tested with F14 Final TC1.1, anaconda works ok with option loglevel=debug.

anaconda 14.22 is in stable.
