Description Eugene Chudakov 2006-01-22 21:02:13 UTC
Description of problem, bug, incorrect information, or enhancement request:

Anaconda crashes persistently while installing FC4, before it starts
formatting. I have FC2 installed on this desktop, with software RAID.
I was trying the "custom" installation. 
Before the crash it complains about hdg5 (a part of md5). I did not include
a mount point for md5. I enclose here the traceback and attach the whole
file anacdump.txt

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/gui.py", line 1137, in handleRenderCallback
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/iw/progress_gui.py", line 244, in renderCallback

  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/partedUtils.py", line 726, in savePartitions
error: Error: Error informing the kernel about modifications to partition
/dev/hdg5 - Device or resource busy.  This means Linux won't know about any
changes you made to /dev/hdg5
until you reboot - so you shouldn't mount it or use it in any way before rebooting.
Version of release notes this bug refers to:

Thank you for the bug report but this should be filed against Anaconda and not
against the release notes since the release notes. Reassigning to Anaconda.
