Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 130403
File exists: '/mnt/sysimage/selinux' and anaconda crashes out
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:47 EST
Description of problem: Doing an upgrade from Fedora Core 2 to Fedora
Core 3 test1, using the CD media on a Thinkpad T20, not running
SELinux, with all FC2 updates applied, provided an error message and
then crashed out.
How reproducible: Twice, I tried it. Willing to say "everytime"
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Insert FC3 test1 CD into drive
2. Start installation process
3. Select Upgrade
4. Wait till it transfers install image to hard drive
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/gui.py", line 1057, in handleRenderCallback
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/iw/progress_gui.py", line 242, in

File "/usr/lib/anaconda/packages.py", line 737, in doPreInstall
os.mkdir(instPath + "/selinux")
OSError: [Errno 17] File exists: '/mnt/sysimage/selinux'
Additional info: Offer to get to the debugger is present, otherwise,
reboot. Willing to do debugging if need be; I still didn't wipe FC2
off the box just in case there are some anaconda weirdness we can fix
because of it
