Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 172182
crashes when package missing from yum repo
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:16 EST
Description of problem:
Anaconda backtraces when a package is missing from the yum repo
used for the installation.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. use a partial rawhide mirror or remove a package needed for install.
2. do anaconda install
yum backtrace about missing package
presumably will be fixed in final package selection UI?
Can you give the actual traceback you received?
With last night's rawhide, I get a
"There was a problem writing the system state to the remote host."
dialog when I try to save the backtrace.
Perhaps you're making a typo in the information you're providing to the dialog?
It's not too helpful in that it doesn't spit back any error message that scp
provides. It's working fine for me here on my setup, though there could
probably be something very different going on with yours.
Lots of work has gone into package selection and error handling in Rawhide.
