custom partitioning on ppc anaconda-18.29.2

Package: anaconda-18.29.2
OS Release: Fedora release 18-Beta

Comment 16 Phil Knirsch 2012-11-26 17:32:21 UTC
I got a very similar bug when i tried the following on x86_64:

1) Start install on an empty disk (used a vm image)
2) Go into partitioning
3) Select custom/manual partitioning
4) On partition screen, DON'T create any partition and directly leave via Finish partitioning
5) Anaconda crashes with a very similar traceback as the one from this bug and ends with:

:  File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/pyanaconda/ui/gui/spokes/storage.py", line 308, in checkStorage
:    StorageChecker.warnings) = self.storage.sanityCheck()
:  File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/threading.py", line 504, in run
:    self.__target(*self.__args, **self.__kwargs)
:  File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/pyanaconda/threads.py", line 91, in run
:    threading.Thread.run(self, *args, **kwargs)
:AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'format'

Thanks & regards, Phil

During manual partitioning on F18 Beta on PowerPC.

Comment 18 David Aquilina 2012-11-28 07:25:01 UTC
I spun the patch[0] into an updates.img[1] and it seems to work, though more testing would be appreciated.

Comment 19 Phil Knirsch 2012-11-28 13:37:24 UTC
Verified with the updates image and successfully completed a custom paritioning setup and installation with it.

Thanks David & Chris!

Comment 20 Chris Lumens 2012-11-28 15:25:10 UTC
Outstanding.  We had some discussion yesterday about building another beta version of anaconda specifically for this bug.  I've put the next post-beta version number in the Fixed In Version field above, but we'll talk about doing another build as well.
