Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 17132
installer crashes if you go back to change the partition sizes
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:58 EDT
I was trying an installation (text expert) and had to change the partition
sizes, so I went back to disk druid to do it and when I arrived again at
the installation of the packages the installer gave me a warning, saying:
"the kernel is unable to read your new partitioning information, probably
because you modified extended partitions.....etc" also stating this is not
critical and just need to reboot. I only could select ok and then I had a
message "excepton occurred"
Traceback (innermost last) File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line ...
intf.run(todo, test = test)
and so on
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/todo.py", line ..., in doInstall
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/fstab.py", line ..., in savePartitions
name error: sys
I had the same with the 6.2 installer, apart from the nice error message
Please reproduce Brock.
I have fixed this in the internal development tree.
