Description of problem:
Somewhere towards the middle of installation (of packages)
anaconda dies with io error 30 and complains that the
fs /mnt/sys...something/... is mounted read only
(ie.the attempted write failed).
Also, since I am not able to save the stacktrace from
the debug session, I cannot include in this message.
Anacond exception handler prodes no method or
tool to save the debug info on disk somewhere.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
fedora core 6 - x86_64-DVD.iso
Steps to Reproduce:
2.Burn it onto DVD media
3.Install fc-6-x86_64 on an AMD Athlon64 processor.
Anaconda crashes with an unxpected exception (failed to write o)
Anaconda debugger provides no way to save the stacktrace onto hard drive,
so I could send it redhat later.
Can you provide the complete traceback you received?
Folks, I am still waiting for info on how I can save the stack backtrace from
the anacoda debug screen. So far I have not seen any method by which I can save
the stack backtrace from the anaconda debug gui interface.
Any info about this would help me attach the bt to this bug.
There's a button to save to floppy as well as a way to save to remove (via scp).
Alternately, you can switch to tty2 and grab things from there (the file is
