Description Kamil Páral 2012-11-14 12:19:02 UTC
Description of problem:
This happened when I copied DVD.iso to a local partition and pxe-booted the installer with inst.repo=hd:vda1:/dvd.iso. The crash occured after clicking Reclaim Space button in the initial "you don't have enough free space" dialog.

Comment 16 Kamil Páral 2012-11-14 12:20:32 UTC
This seems to be a blocker:
 The installer must be able to use all supported local and remote package source options 

Relevant test case:

Comment 17 Kamil Páral 2012-11-14 18:23:14 UTC
I've just hit that again and this time I wasn't doing any inst.repo=hd: magic. Therefore it is probably more related to the actual disk contents.

partitioning dialog

This is a related screenshot of the partitioning screen. Note how wrong it is, it says I have enough space and that I don't have enough space. After I click Reclaim Space, it crashes with the error above.

Comment 19 Kamil Páral 2012-11-23 12:48:32 UTC
Hit Reclaim Space.

Package: anaconda-18.29.2

Comment 20 Adam Williamson 2012-11-29 18:59:40 UTC
Discussed at 2012-11-29 blocker review meeting: http://meetbot.fedoraproject.org/fedora-qa/2012-11-29/f18final-blocker-review-1.1.2012-11-29-17.01.log.txt . We don't yet have enough information on what's required to trigger this or enough people reproducing it to call it a blocker, but it's clearly a bad bug, so we are punting on it in the hopes that more information will show up.

Comment 23 Kamil Páral 2012-12-07 10:24:33 UTC
I have repeated the procedure mentioned in the description, all is OK. But as comment 17 says, this was probably related to disk contents rather than install method, and I don't know how to verify that.

Anaconda devs, if you know some reproducer, I can try to re-verify, otherwise we just have to believe it works now.

Comment 24 Fedora Update System 2012-12-08 04:30:32 UTC
anaconda-18.36-1.fc18 has been pushed to the Fedora 18 stable repository.  If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
