Description Michal Jaegermann 2003-11-19 00:29:34 UTC
Description of problem:
Attempts to install over a network or using a CD end up with
"No such file or directory error".  After a peek at stage2.img
and netstg2.img from x86_64/Fedora/base I have a gnawing suspicion
that the problem is that 'anaconda' starts with
#!/usr/bin/python2.2
line but there is no 'python2.2' anywhere in sight on these images;
only usr/bin/python.  For all other Python files in that directory
'file' reports "a /usr/bin/python script text executable" but
not for anaconda.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Boot images with a time stamp "Nov 18 03:36".

How reproducible:
Every time.

Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2003-11-19 21:37:13 UTC
Fixed in CVS, just working on some other changes that break trees
horribly before throwing it into rawhide.

Comment 2 Michal Jaegermann 2003-12-14 18:56:59 UTC
Looking at images from "Dec 14" I can see at last
#!/usr/bin/python
in anaconda and there are even included anaconda python libraries.
There is one more catch, though.  These libraries reside in
usr/lib64/python2.3 while anaconda includes the following code:

    if os.access("/usr/lib64/python2.2/site-packages/rhpl", os.X_OK):
        libdir = "lib64"
    else:
        libdir = "lib"

This means that 'libdir' will be set to "lib" and things will
still not fly.

Closing due to inactivity. Please feel free to reopen this bug or refile this
bug against the latest release Fedora Core if you feel this bug is still
relevant today.

Thank you
