Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 152610
kickstart fails with python errors
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:02 EST
Description of problem:
I have a proven kickstart setup where I install via url method from a local
webserver. I dumped the new FC4-1 isos into a diretory to use as the install
base. The system boots and attempts to run anaconda, but falls on its face
before doing anything meaningful.
Boot the boot.iso in the FC4-1 images directory of the CDs.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot to a kickstart that references FC4-1.
The output on the screen looks something like this:
Running anaconda, the Fedora Core system installer - please wait...
Could not find platform independant libraries <prefix>
Consider setting $PYTHONHOME to <prefix>[:<exec_prefix>]
'import site' failed; use -v for traceback
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 28, in ?
import sys, os
Import Error: No module named os
install exited abnormally
sending termination signals...done
sending kill signals...done
...it halts (but doesn't power off) after this point...
System install based on the kickstart file.
