Description of problem:
When doing a pxe/nfs fresh install anaconda backtraces just after
loading the 2nd stage.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.pxe boot machine
2.answer the questions
3.Once the 2nd stage loads I get a backtrace.
Actual Results: backtrace occurred:
Expected Results: Normal install
File /usr/bin/anaconda line 574 in
isys.mount ("/selinux", "/selinux", "fstype=selinuxfs"
file /usr/lib/anaconda/isys.py line 172 in mount
rc = _isys.mount(fsdevice, type, location, readonly, bindMount, remount)
SystemError: (19, 'no such device')
install exited abnormally.
I had to copy this by hand so if something looks weird about the above
let me know and I will provide more info.
Oh and one more thing, I am using selinux=0 at boot time to get around
the dhcp bug.
Booting with 'selinux=0', although a workaround for the DHCP thing is
going to cause lots of other problems during installation.
I'd rather get a fix for bug 114092 and not have to boot with
OK. I reran anaconda without selinux=0 and I set the address manually.
This appears to fix that problem. I now can get up to the point where
it fails with some kind of pango error. Are you aware of this error or
should I file a bug with the information? The first line of the error is
GetTextSearchFlags is not an eunm type. If you want a bug what
component should I file it against?? Anaconda??
Should we just close this??
The pango error is already known. Going to leave this open as the
failure mode for selinux=0 should be nicer :)
FWIW, I ran anaconda this morning with the image from Jan 29 and
setting selinux=0 appears to now do the right thing (tm). I did not
actually complete the install but I ran it up to the point of
selecting packages and everything seemed fine.
Yeah, I fixed this now :)
This should be good with current trees
