Description of problem:
While running Anaconda with Kadischi I get a traceback. The traceback snippet is
Probing for video card:   Cirrus Logic GD 5430/40 [Alpine]
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/sbin/anaconda", line 843, in ?
  File "/usr/sbin/anaconda", line 554, in setMethod
    self.method =  UrlInstallMethod(self.methodstr, self.rootPath, self.intf)
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/urlinstall.py", line 170, in __init__
    if path[1] == '/' and scheme == 'ftp':
IndexError: string index out of range

This is while running Anaconda under Kadischi.

Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2006-08-15 10:58:11 EDT
What arguments are being passed to anaconda?
Comment 2 Jasper O. Hartline 2006-08-15 13:24:14 EDT
The argument passing should look like so:
anaconda --text --rootpath=/our/rootpath --method=

As per kadischi.py from Kadischi CVS shown to reflect the parameters passed.

Here is the Anaconda code execution block out of Kadischi CVS kadischi.py:
-------------------------- BEGIN ----------------

    # run anaconda
    print "\n[kadischi] : running anaconda    \n"
    anaconda_args.append("--rootpath=%s" % sysdir)
    anaconda_args.append("--method=%s" % method)
    print "\n[kadischi] :  anaconda has finished its job \n"

-------------------------- END ------------------ 
Comment 3 Chris Lumens 2006-08-15 13:40:37 EDT
Thanks for the report.  This will be fixed in the next build of anaconda.
