Description adembaba 2004-06-08 05:13:07 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.7b)

Description of problem:
Enclosed anaconda dump is generated while installing FC2.
This occurs after the installation step that formats the disks.

Installation ove FTP in local network.


Tyan K8W Pro
2 Opteron CPU
2 Gig RAM
3 Ware 8506-4 RAID 5
4 disks 120 GB each. One is left out as hot spare (not that this
may be relevant)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
FC2 Release CDs

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start with boot cd to boot over ftp
2. Say yes to all
3. Wait it starts to actually install packages
4. Observe the window saying unhandled exception

Actual Results:  always back to reboot. IOW, nothing useful.

Expected Results:  do the installation :-)

Is this reliably reproducible?
Comment 3 adembaba 2004-06-09 18:30:31 EDT
Having spent 3 full days on it, it is quite
reproducible here ;-)

I have tried almost all combinations I can 
think of:

-- With/without GUI
-- With/without Firewall
-- Expert/Newbie
-- Desktop/Workstation/Server/Custom

each and every one of them failed.

I am at wits end. I will revert to using FC1.
Shame really, I kept this box around unused for 
nearly 2 months so that I'd try FC2-x86_64 on it.

Update info:

I have solved this --sort of.

It seems it is somehow possible that the DVD 
download can introduce some impurities into 
the file.

I replaced the Fedora/base contents with fresh copies 
from remote ftp sites, And, installation succeeded 
with a quirk:

To test, I run the setup with Install Everything 
(except for Firewall) and I get the same Unhandled 
Exception right after it is done with wordtrans* rpms.

wordtrans* rpms (as well as others) have the correct 
MD5 checksums. I can't tell what else is wrong with them.

Anyway, for my purposes, this bug can be said to be 

I am sorry it took so much of my time --probbaly yours 
as well.
