Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 212221
Graphical Installer can't unmount DVD after partitioning
Last modified: 2008-08-02 19:40:33 EDT
Description of problem:
After selecting my install partitian to install, I get that they CD can't be
unount from /dev/source (or was it /mnt/source?) and it warns about using it
with tty2. I didn't do anything with tty2 and I rebooted to try it again and got
the same problem. I tried manually unounting /(dev/mnt)/source which I could do,
but the retry button still failed to work. The log window (tty3 I believe) said
something about cdmount (cdSOMETHING) illegal paramater. This wasn't a problem
once I switched to the text mode installer on reboot. The only oddity I can
think of is my LVM raid of two SATA drives?
AMD X2 3800+
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
I have a similar problem. When I get to the screen to select what software to
install, I selected Fedora Extras then selected next. I then receive the message
"An error occured unmounting the CD. Please make sure you'r not accessing
/mnt/source from the shell on tty2 then vlick OK to retry." However I select OK
and get that message again, the is no way to proceed.
- I'm booting of a DVD
- When I switch to tty2 and type mount, it tells me /tmp/cdrom is mounted on
/mnt/source I'm unable to umount either /mnt/source or /tmp/cdrom
"umount: Couldn't umount /tmp/cdrom: Function not implemented"
typing "eject" didn't work either
- In /tmp/anaconda.log the only relevant message appears to be
"ERROR: exception in unmountCD:( 16, 'Device or resource busy')
- When I typed "fuser /tmp/cdrom" I got a segmenattion fault
When I ran again, this time not selecting "Fedora Extras" it all worked and
Just to confirm, Steve's situation is the same as mine.
Can you provide /tmp/anaconda.log?

This was against FC6 I believe, I no longer have this problem in F7 and I think
there isn't much interest in fixing this so change status to "WONTFIX"?
