Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 106851
Upgrading RH 8.0 Installation to FC/0.94 failes with anaconda crash
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:32 EST
Description of problem:
Upgrading a RH 8.0 Installation fails:
- Graphical update terminates after crash of X-Server
- Text-based update fails with "unhandled exception" within anaconda
(anacdump.txt has been saved and will be added to this report)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Dunno; anaconda from the FC/0.94 images found on ftp.redhat.com.
Boot from first CD. Boot "linux text", since graphic mode does not
work for some reason. Select updating /dev/hda2, which holds the
RedHat 8.0 installation.
After checking the installed packages from RH 8.0, anaconda terminates
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 1106, in ?
intf.run(id, dispatch, configFileData)
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/text.py", line 451, in run
rc = apply(win, (self.screen, ) + args)
TypeError: __call__() takes exactly 2 arguments (4 given)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot "linux text" on K7S5 Mainboard with Duron 900, MGA G400 AGP
2. Try to upgrade existing RH 8.0 installation
3. Anaconda fails
Upgrading from RH 8.0 to FC .94 is not possible.
A nicely updated system.
