Anaconda crash in text-mode nfsiso install
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:54 EST
Anaconda crashes when starting a text-mode install using ISO disc
images via NFS.
Since I do not have a mouse connected, Anaconda shows a dialog box
asking whether to continue with graphical install or use text-mode
install instead. I select the latter, and Anaconda says it is
starting the text-mode install. Shortly thereafter, Anaconda crashes.
Here is the part of the stack trace still visible on the screen after
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/image.py", line 573, in __init__
self.discImages = findIsoImages(tree, messageWindow)
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/image.py", line 476, in findIsoImages
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/text.py", line 272, in messageWindow

I verified the md5sums of the binary CD images, and they all look okay.
Is it the DVD ISO or the CD ISOs? This is coming about when we try to
report an error with the size of the images not being a multiple of
2048. Which sometimes happens with broken NFS servers and the DVD iso
but I've never seen it with the CD images except when there's a broken
The directory contained full CD ISOs, and a partially-downloaded DVD
ISO. Maybe the presence of the partial DVD ISO messed things up?
Yep, that would probably do it. Can you confirm that moving it out of
the way makes things work?
