Description Nathan G. Grennan 2002-12-25 05:58:00 UTC

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.2.7 (X11; Linux i686; U;) Gecko/20021216

Description of problem:
mknod doesn't work in the shell during the installer or during rescue mode
because PYTHONPATH isn't being set. So when mknod looks for the isys module
which is in /usr/lib/anaconda it isn't found.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot disc1 cd
2. Type linux rescue at the boot: prompt
3. Skip mount
4. mknod /tmp/hde1 b 33 1

Actual Results:  Traceback about inability to import the module isys

Expected Results:  It to make /tmp/hde1

Additional info:

Comment 1 Nathan G. Grennan 2002-12-25 06:26:53 UTC
isys is actually in /mny/runtime/usr/lib/anaconda

I tried  export PYTHONPATH=/mnt/runtime/usr/lib/anaconda  in the shell during
the install and it made mknod work.

Noticed this when I was testing something before I left for the holidays, so
it's already fixed in CVS
