Description Andy Gray 2005-08-04 19:28:01 EDT
Description of problem:

Whenever I try to install FC4 I get an Error right after choosing to upgrade. 
In a fresh install it occurs immediately after choosing partitioning method.

This is my system:

800 Mhz Celleron-133Mhz FSB

320 MB RAM

Korean Data Systems Visual Sensations-7e

NVIDIA TNT2 with 32 MB Video RAM on AGP slot

Trio64V2/DX with 4 MB Video RAM on PCI slot

Sound Blaster Live 5.1 sound card

3com EtherLink 10/100 (3C905C)

PCMCIA Adapter PCI card

PCMCIA CompactFlash adapter

hda-8GB internal

   hda1-2MB-Fat-Win2K boot




hdb-DVD+/-R/+/-RW internal


hdc-6GB internal


hdd-6GB internal


hde-128MB CompactFalash card on PCMCIA adapter


sda-32MB imation USB pen drive


HP DeskJet 632C on USB

How reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:

1. Boot from FC4 DVD and Start installation

2. Get as far as choosing disk partitioning method or choosing to upgrade

Actual results:

Window appears that says there is an unexpected exception, probably a bug, and
to report it here.  then it says:

Traceback (most recent call last):

 File "/usr/lib/anaconda/gui.py", line 873, in



 File "/usr/lib/anaconda/dispatch.py", line 174, in



 File "/usr/lib/anaconda/dispatch.py", line 242


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

 File "/usr/lib/anaconda/partitions.py", line 108, in


  ptype =


 File "/usr/lib/anaconda/partedUtils.py", line 140, in


  elif (part.get_flag(parted.PARTITION_BOOT) == 1 and

AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute name

Expected results:

It should have gone trough the partioning menus and continued installing

Additional info:

Please help me, I cant upgrade to FC4 untill this is resolved-thank you everyone
for all your help, and even more, thank you to everyone who has worked on the
Fedora project ever, for making a wonderful free operating system, and
supporting it as well
