Description John Cagle 2000-08-15 21:23:37 UTC
Here's an anaconda crash that happened during a net install of a "Web Server":

Traceback (innermost last):
  File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 426, in ?
    intf.run(todo, test = test)
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0//usr/lib/anaconda/text.py", line 1028, in run
    rc = apply (step[1](), step[2])
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0//usr/lib/anaconda/text.py", line 507, in __call__
    if todo.doInstall ():

Comment 2 Michael Fulbright 2000-08-16 16:41:31 UTC
Was this an NFS, FTP, or HTTP install?

What options did you choose in the installer - Workstation, Server, or Custom?

I have not seen this issue before - could you retry and see if it works?

Comment 3 John Cagle 2000-08-16 18:08:05 UTC
This was a kickstarted NFS installation from an RC1
tree that has the update.img applied.  (Sorry, it
was not a GUI install.)

Here's the kickstart file:

lang en_US
network --bootproto dhcp
nfs --server 192.168.1.22 --dir /home/ftp/redhat
keyboard "us"
zerombr yes
clearpart --linux
part / --size 1024 --grow
part /boot --size 16
part swap --size 64
install
mouse genericps/2 --emulthree
timezone America/Chicago
xconfig --server "SVGA" --monitor "generic monitor"
rootpw password
auth --useshadow --enablemd5
lilo --location partition
reboot
%packages
@Web Server
@GNOME Workstation
@Development
%post
/sbin/lilo -R dos


Comment 4 John Cagle 2000-08-16 18:13:23 UTC
BTW, we've seen this three times in a row - that is, the same process on three 
different systems.  We also double checked that the boot disk code came from 
the RC1 CD.


Comment 5 Erik Troan 2000-08-16 19:56:56 UTC
"GNOME Workstation" isn't a proper component, so kickstart doesn't recognize it.
Just "GNOME"
will work. Fwiw, the standard "GNOME Workstation" install includes just the
"GNOME" component.

Comment 6 John Cagle 2000-08-17 20:26:18 UTC
Thanks!  That seems to work.  FWIW, "GNOME Workstation" worked on
beta 5, so something changed in RC1...
