Anaconda blows up early in install
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:43 EST
Description of problem:
Anaconda goes through the early parts of the process and then produces four
dialogs aobut /dev/sda,b,c,d having no medium installed (which is believable as
it's a USB card reader widget). It then prints up
"No handlers could be found for logger yum.YumBase"
Box is a generic AMD64 whitebox with VIA and SI680 IDE on it (4 disks on the
SI680 in /dev/md). CD-ROM on the via.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: 100%
I don't think the yum message should be causing the installer to abort. Are you
getting any suspect kernel messages on tty4? When it aborts, are you just
getting the "installer exited abnormally [1/1]" message, or is it more useful
There are no kernel messages indicating failure, just the installer message. I
could reproduce it (I've blown away that environment now doing an install test).
It happened on upgrade attempts but not on install. On install attempts the
system crashes part way through the install as seems to be the case for other
boxes I've tried (thats got its own kernel bug assigned).
Should add btw FC6t2 is fine on this box, and has been running stably for some
time with nothing but the expected application bugs and unfixed things.
Fc6Pre works correctly
