Description Andrew Power 2005-05-12 04:22:40 EDT
Description of problem:
can't run postinstall procedure

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. start text install on x86_64 (disabled selinux, disabled firewall, selection
2. after all packages downloaded, and installed got error message about post install

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 1160, in ?
    intf.run(id, dispatch)
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/text.py", line 496, in run
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/dispatch.py", line 172, in gotoNext
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/dispatch.py", line 240, in moveStep
    rc = apply(func, self.bindArgs(args))
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/packages.py", line 1199, in doPostInstall
    stdout = devnull)
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/iutil.py", line 53, in execWithRedirect
    raise RunTimeError, command + " can not be run"
RuntimeError: /usr/bin/kudzu can not be run"
Comment 1 Dan Carpenter 2005-05-12 19:27:44 EDT
In the post install anaconda does a chroot and tries to run 
/usr/bin/kudzu under the newly installed system.

There was a bug in FC2 x86_64 where the if there was a + in in the `fdisk -l`*
output something didn't get parsed correctly and none of the packages installed.
 This would cause chrooting and running /usr/sbin/kudzu to fail (Since nothing
was installed).

I think this was fixed in FC3.

This sounds similar.

*This '+' mark in fdisk -l indicates rounding.
Comment 2 Andrew Power 2005-05-13 03:03:08 EDT
FC3 x86_64 is working correctly.
This is FC4 test.


~ # fdisk -l

Disk /dev/sda: 80.0GB, 80060424192 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 9733 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sda1   *           1        9603    77136066   83  Linux
/dev/sda2            9604        9733     1044225   82  Linux swap / Solaris


when install failed, switch to busybox, and try this:

~ # chroot /mnt/sysimage
sh-3.00# /usr/sbin/kudzu
sh: /usr/sbin/kudzu: No such file or directory

Where is kudzu?????

Can you provide the complete anacdump.txt you received?
Comment 4 Andrew Power 2005-05-17 09:28:34 EDT
this problem only affect when you're not select any things...
since today i was select only minimal (cca 430Mb) install
when i accept default selection, this problem is not reproducible
