Description Jon 2004-11-16 05:33:39 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; 
SV1; .NET CLR 1.0.3705; .NET CLR 1.1.4322)

Description of problem:
When using kiskstart with FC3, if "part" is defined, installer 
crashes with "install exited unexpectedly" with no traceback.  
If "part" is not defined in the kickstart file, the partition 
information is requested and everything proceeds to install ok.
If Fedora/base/*, isolinux/* and .discinfo are taken from FC2 and 
replace FC3's version, everything is as expected.  The same happens 
on the i386 version, so it is not a 64bit issue.  Attached are a copy 
of ks.cfg and isolinux/isolinux.cfg that are the only changes to the 
FC3 iso images.
This is not an issue with FC2.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Take FC3 disc1 ISO image
2.Add ks.cfg in root of iso image
3.Update isolinux/isolinux.cfg
4.Burn new iso and try to build system


Actual Results:  Build gets as far as preparing rpms for installation 
and then crashes with "install exited unexpectedly"

Expected Results:  The install should successfully complete

Additional info:

5.Comment out the 3 "part" lines from ks.cfg and retry - now all 
works after using Disk Druid.

I do not believe that the packages selected make any difference - one of the
iterations was to use only the loaded packes on a built FC3 system - which
still failed.

OK, but I am not doing this from a hard-disc install, and I am pretty 
confident that I do not go this code path - in particular, I am not 
using /dev within the ks.cfg file.
I also did not get glibc complaining about any double frees etc.
