/usr/lib/anaconda/iw/network_gui.py:265 syntax error when installing
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:47 EST
Description of problem:
After showing the Boot Loader Configuration page, a dialog box
entitled "Exception Occured" (hmm, it should be "Occurred") with the
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/gui.py", line 775, in nextClicked
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/gui.py", line 1086, in setScreen
File "<string>", line 1, in ?
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/iw/network_gui.py", line 265
SyntaxError: invalid syntax
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 3 Test 1, CD 1
Install on Toshiba 7020CT notebook (366 MHZ, 192 Mb memory, in DVD
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot CD 1 => Graphical install => Skip media test => Workstation
2. Auto-partition the disk => Remove all partitions, not just Linux
3. Review partitions => (look at them) => click Next button
4. Bootloader Config page appears and the installer poots
Error dialog box as noted above
Continue with the installation
Toshiba 7020CT, 366 MHZ, 192 (max) Mb memory, 6 Gb hard drive, DVD
dock with Intel E100 network NIC chip. No PCMCIA used.
*D'oh!* I forgot to mention that it's a Toshiba _Portege_ 7020CT
with a Pentium II chip.
I verified the CDs when I burned them (with the Mac OS X/Panther Disk
Utility), and did the Media Test on the first CD. Both tests passed.
On the second attempt I tried:
* Remove all Linux partitions (not all partitions like last time)
* No review of partitions created
It worked! I got past the Boot Loader Configuration screen through
to the Network Configuration screen. So that's a (possible)
reassigning it from the incorrect "test3" to the correct "test1".
That traceback looks suspiciously like a CD read problem. Could you
attach the full dump?
Shucks, that traceback was the whole error message.
Is there somewhere else I can fetch a dump from, now that I've
installed FC3t1? I did a "find /var -type f | xargs egrep
/usr/lib/anaconda/iw/network_gui.py" but it didn't find anything.
Hardware note: It was reading the CD in the DVD reader in the dock,
but you've already figured that out.
And you caught that typo about Occurred having two r's in the dialog
box's title bar, right? I can submit a separate bug report if it's
