full console log from installation

anaconda on s390 doesn't start and throws a traceback instead

13:56:38 Starting VNC...
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/sbin/anaconda", line 792, in <module>
    setupDisplay(anaconda, opts)
  File "/usr/sbin/anaconda", line 585, in setupDisplay

  File "/usr/sbin/anaconda", line 326, in runVNC
    vncS.startServer()

    if self.ip.find(':') != -1:
AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'find'

I suppose it's related to how network is being setup via dracut now.


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
anaconda-17.16-1.fc17

Even including cherry-picked s390x fixes from the rhel7-alpha branch didn't help (for the rpms please see http://s390.koji.fedoraproject.org/scratch/sharkcz/task_631385/)

Reassigning to David who is more in the picture handling s390 networking stuff for rhel7-alpha.
Comment 3 Jesse Keating 2012-04-20 09:43:17 EDT
Worse, if you remove the vnc option, you cannot install at all.  I'm digging into what's going on.
Comment 4 Dan Horák 2012-05-11 08:29:56 EDT
Fixed by recent updates in dracut/lorax/whatever :-)
