Anaconda hangs on "Installing bootloader", files not found
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:44 EST
Description of problem:
Anaconda hangs on the 'Installing bootloader' step after installing packages
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Complete the system setup
2. Watch for the final configuration / bootloader windows to popup
The bootloader window sits there forever.
The bootloader should install
I switched VT's and grabbed this error message:
[A bunch of Anaconda paths listed]
... in WriteGrub (line # 947)
in /usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/rhpl/executil.py, line 81 in ExecWithRedirect
OSError: No such file/folder.
Any errors on tty4? As this means that we probably had an error reading/writing
Actually, hrmm... I wonder if this is related to some of the ext3 problems davej
Nope, no errors except the one I posted above. I formatted a ext3 partition for
/ during the install, incase it helps.
How much memory does your machine have?

If this is referring to firstboot coming up with no text being able to be added
to create the default user, I have experienced this on a GUI install using
as the argument to the installer.
Checkimg out errors marked as duplicates to a bug that I submitted.
Nope, this is different - My system never even gets to firstboot, it freezes on
the bootloader installation on the Anaconda installer CDs. (Well, in my case, DVD)
