Anaconda AttributeError: 'module' no attribute 'probeHW'
Last modified: 2018-10-03 14:58:19 EDT
Description of problem:
While running Anaconda on FC6T1 machine with a development package of Anaconda I
get this traceback outlined below. IT is while running Anaconda with Kadischi to
build a LiveCD from the Test host.. nothing extraordinary.
The traceback is such:
[kadischi] : running anaconda
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/sbin/anaconda", line 780, in ?
(videohw, monitorhw, mousehw, xcfg, kbd, floppyDevice) = probeHW(opts,
File "/usr/sbin/anaconda", line 468, in probeHW
(videohw, monitorhw, mousehw) = xserver.probeHW(skipDDCProbe=skipddcprobe,
AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'probeHW'
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Run Anaconda with Kadischi from FC6T1 host to build a LiveCD.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. kadischi --text --kickstart=/tmp/minimal-livecd.cfg
/var/ftp/pub/fedora/development/i386/os/ -f /tmp/FEDORA-RAWHIDE.ISO
Traceback and a subsequent failure of Kadischi and Anaconda.
RAWHIDE LiveCD is built, Anaconda not trace'ing back.
There is no additional information at this time.
You need to have rhpxl 0.25 (or later, I guess I might build yet another one
here in a day or two) for recent anacondas to work. Fixed the requires in anaconda.
Thank you Chris Lumens we now have a functioning LiveCD tool livemedia-creator that I will file bugs on here shortly.
