Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 116530
Anaconda crashes when "Search Linux installations"
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:37 EST
Description of problem:
Anaconda crashes just after searching for "previous Linux
installations" (Python errors).
A previous Fedora Core 1 installation already exists on disk (I want
to wipe it out and reinstall).
The same crash occurs when trying to install in graphical mode, in
text mode or when trying to start "linux rescue" or "linux single" to
modify partitions on /dev/sda.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Anaconda, version included in "official" Fedora Core 1 CDs, i.e.
Just install Fedora Core on a hardware configuration similar to mine.
Anaconda crashes with Python errors.
Anaconda should allow me to modify the pre-existing partitions on the
SCSI disk (using Disk Druid).
- Pentium 233 MHz (slot)
- 64 MB RAM
- old MB with Intel SB82371SB chipset, integrated Adaptec SCSI
controller (chipset Adaptec AIC-7880P)
- the only HDD is a Fujitsu M2954QYU (SCSI).
- CD-ROM is a Pioneer DR-U24X (SCSI) - I am booting from it.
Can you attach the dump of the crash?
I am seeing a simliar problem, but it's on FC3 test 2, and with a
AMD64 installation. It does the search for installations (I used to
have one, but I blew it away) then bombs out with "install exited
abnormally" and no extra information. The media check passes. I'm
not sure what more I can do. No useful errors are provided to me, as
far as I can tell.
Closing due to inactivity. If you continue to have this problem on a
newer release of Fedora Core, please reopen and add any additional
information to this report.
