Description of problem:
exception thrown due to missing libparted
the error occurs on the installation screen and I couldn't copy all
the messages before the machine rebooted
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. burn boot.iso to CD-RW
2. boot and answer questions (HTTP install)
3. watch anaconda startup fail
Actual Results: missing library exception
Fixed with pyparted 1.6.8. parted ABI changed in 1.6.12 and I didn't
think about that consequence yesterday.
now anaconda fails with a couple of partition related assertion failures!
Assertion (ped_partition_is_active(part)) at
disk.c:935 in function ped_partition_get_flag() failed.
[ignore selected, then ]
Assertion (par->disk_specific != NULL ) at disk_dos.c:1161 in
function msdos_partition_get_flag() failed.
[there are no msdos partitions on the disks of this system]
This is probably also from the parted stuff, do you want a new bug
anaconda (rawhide) of 2004-08-18 still throws the first assertion bug,
but selecting "cancel" allows installation to proceed.
additionally, installation of IPROUTE RPM still fails unless selinux=0
is given on the boot line
Jeremy, I'm seeing the behavior ggw describes in Comment #3 in the
rawhide-20040823 tree. Clicking "Cancel" appears to allow anaconda to
proceed, but this is something that should be looked at.
Setting state to Assigned.
Please file that as a separate bug. Otherwise, things are going to
get hopelessly confused (and I have a box I can reproduce this on,
just need the hour or so to sit down and debug it).
Ok, I just filed bug #130692.
