Anaconda Crash During Install
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:51 EST
Description of problem:
The install crash with the following;
'import site' failed; use -v for traceback
file '/usr/bin/anaconda' line 348 in ?
import signal, traceback, string, isys, iutil, time
file 'usr/lib/anaconda/isys.py' line 24 in ?
Importerror : No module named kudzu
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Always on my one amd64 machine.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Attempt install on x86_64 machine
2. After storage drivers loaded (1394, usb, sata, via_sata, sym53c8xx)
Asus K8VSE Deluxe, AMD64 3200, Nvidia 5700.
FYI - systems has been running FC2 since release.
Can you provide the complete traceback you received?
That was it I !
I did not get any further info.
BTW - I also tried 'text' mode and it crashed but there was no error,
it was just after starting anaconda and it send 'installer aborting'
Something that may be significant is that the media I used to burn the
ISO image too is not the best quality.
I have burned about 8 (out of 25) and every one failed to read in
other players etc.
I will test this evening with A-Grade media and ensure that I'm not
wasting your time.
Did things work better with the better quality media?
I managed to do an 'upgrade' with i386 DVD but the 'install' crashed.
This was on A-grade media.
Not sure whats going on.
Does booting with 'linux ide=nodma' help?
