Description Glen 2006-02-23 00:15:37 UTC
Description of problem:
I throw in the install cd, load it up, wait a little bit, and this pops up:

Starting graphical installation
Traceback (most recent calls last)
  File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 1113, in ?
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/iutil.py", line 445, in makeDriveDeviceNodes
    isys.makeDevInode(drive, "/dev/%s" % (drive,)
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/isys.py", line 415, in makeDevInode
    _isys.mkdevinode(name, fn)
System Error: (2, 'No such file or directory')
install exited abnormally

It's just a guess, but it might have something to do with my mandriva install
confusing the installer.  Mandriva is on one of the my two hard drives, with a
small /boot partition at the beginning, and a large lvm2 partition with two
logical volumes inside, one for root and one for swap.  My second hard drive is
completely empty.  Nothing changes if I zero out the second hard drive or
partition it.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot the install cd
Actual results:
The installer crashes

Expected results:
A working installer

Additional info: I still need to load the i2o driver before my hard disk is
detected, which is rather annoying.

Please attach the complete exception details.

Comment 2 Glen 2006-02-24 16:33:23 UTC
Say what?  That's as complete as it gets.  That's all that gets printed out to
the screen anyhow.  Is there something I can do to get more details?

Anyhow, I pulled my zero channel RAID card and tried again and now things work
fine.  So it isn't the Mandriva partitions.  Looks like i2o drivers are once
again the bane of my existance.

Fixed in CVS.  i2o makes my eyes bleed.
