Description of problem: anaconda bombs out on Sony Picturebook C1VFK during
hard disc upgrade to FC-4 from FC-3 while "Reading package information"


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


How reproducible: 
Same result on second identical machine


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to upgrade from FC-3 to FC-4 on Sony Picturebook C1VFK/C1VE,
from hard disk.
2.
3.
  
Actual results:
Error message
========================================
An unhandled exception has occurred.  This
is most likely a bug.  Please copy the full
text of this exception and file a detailed
bug report against anaconda at
http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/

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
    dispatch.gotoNext()
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/dispatch.py, line

    self.moveStep()
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/dispatch.py, line

    rc = apply(func, self.bindArgs(args))
========================================



Expected results:
Upgrade of system from FC-3 to FC-4

Additional info:
Exactly the same result on second identical machine.
Installation was from hard disk in both cases
(because of difficulty booting from CD on this machine).
System booted through grub, after transferring files in isolinux directory
on CD image to sub-directory of /boot .

Iso images checked with "linux mediacheck".

Can you provide the complete traceback you received?
Comment 2 Timothy Murphy 2005-06-21 08:15:47 EDT
You ask me for the complete traceback I received.

I already gave that in my bug report.
Here it is again:

I'm not sure what more you want.

The error dump provided during install on anaconda. I have the same problem (I'm doing fresh FC4 x86_64), happens in text/graphical mode, diskdruid or automatic.

The anacdump received in the error box.
Comment 4 Alec 2005-09-05 21:01:08 EDT
Oops. I guess my comments didn't get in there. I'm doing a fresh FC4 x86_64
(never installed before), and it happens right after the install.log info
screen, right before it starts installing packages...Thanks
Comment 5 Jeremy Katz 2005-09-06 11:23:19 EDT
There are multiple read errors from your CD.  Please be sure to verify your
installation media according to the instructions at
http://rhlinux.redhat.com/anaconda/mediacheck.html
Comment 6 Alec 2005-09-06 22:41:03 EDT
I checked cd #1 (the only one in the drive at the time) in the check tool on
boot, and it passed. I DID get around the problem - I used the preset
workstation install, and had no problems. Before, I was using my own custom
package selection. WOW. Fedora makes linux usable.
Comment 7 Alec 2005-09-08 14:46:07 EDT
FYI: ALL of my problems/fixes have been done NOT on a Sony Picturebook, but on
an Athlon64 box. My problem was specifically with the ananconda installer on
custom package selection from fc4 cds. Sorry if my previous posted information
(or lack thereof) confused you.
