Doc Type: Known Issue
Doc Text:
Prior to this update, attempts to save the Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack installer liveCD to disk without NetworkManager running would receive a traceback ending in "dbus.exceptions.DBusException: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name org.freedesktop.NetworkManager was not provided by any .service files". A workaround has been identified to address this issue: Boot using the "boot" menu item in grub (or take the default), then `sudo service NetworkManager start && sudo liveinst` Consequently, the Windowed installer will start as expected.

Description Alexander Chuzhoy 2014-08-14 22:21:24 UTC
Rubygem-Staypuft:  Running liveinst in attempt to save the liveCD to disk doesn't work.

Environment: rhelosp-installer-live-6.5-20140814.1.iso

How to reproduce:
1. Boot from liveCD.
2. Run "liveinst"


bash-4.1$ liveinst

Comment 1 Alexander Chuzhoy 2014-08-14 22:30:52 UTC
Also tried the "install" option from the grub menu. Attempted to boot from disk: was prompted that the disk isn't bootable.

Comment 4 Alexander Chuzhoy 2014-08-15 21:02:41 UTC
Tried - doesn't work.

Get a window with a "next" button. Clicking on "next" throws:

An error occured when attempting to load an installer interface component.
className =  KeyboardWindow

Comment 5 Robbie Harwood 2014-08-18 20:43:53 UTC
The installer error should be fixed in 20140818.3.

Comment 6 Alexander Chuzhoy 2014-08-19 14:15:38 UTC
Still doesn't work with rhelosp-installer-live-6.5-20140818.3.iso

The install option from the grub menu - didn't seem to do anything. Attempted to boot from the hard drive - but the HD wasn't bootable.

Running liveinst starts the installation. Then, during the "Copying live image to hard drive" a warning pops up:
"There was an error installing the bootloader. The system may not be bootable."

The system in fact gets stuck on attempt to boot from the hard drive.

warning that pops up during the run of liveinst

Comment 8 Robbie Harwood 2014-08-19 14:20:45 UTC
The option from the grub menu will not work until NetworkManager is running on boot as per the doc text.  I will look into the failure with liveinst.

Comment 9 Robbie Harwood 2014-08-19 16:32:45 UTC
I've run through the liveinst, and with 20140819.2 (new build) it now produces a bootable image with no warnings for me.

Comment 10 Robbie Harwood 2014-08-21 16:12:52 UTC

version: rhelosp-installer-live-6.5-20140820.1.iso
Running "service NetworkManager start && liveinst" results in successful writing to disk. After that I was able to boot from the HD.

Comment 14 Alexander Chuzhoy 2014-09-15 18:31:04 UTC
Verified: rhelosp-installer-live-6.5-20140912.1.iso

As per the doc:
Must run "sudo service NetworkManager start" followed by "sudo liveinst". This will start a windowed installer. After completing the installer the image will be written to the HD.
