Anaconda crashes with unhandled exception when DHCP fails on Extras install
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:47 EST
Description of problem:
I selected Fedora Extras as an additional repository. It tried to get a DHCP
address, but I didn't have a cable plugged in to eth0. After some amount of
time (approximately 30 seconds) an unhandled exception occurred.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select FE repository
2. unplug ethernet cable
3. wait for error
Traceback (most recent call first):
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/iw/netconfig_dialog.py", line 215, in _ok
_("Error configuring network device"))
TypeError: parent should be a GtkWindow or None
Local variables in innermost frame:
self: <netconfig_dialog.NetworkConfigurator instance at 0xa9cf6cc>
args: (<gtk.Button object (GtkButton) at 0xaada07c>,)
w: <gui.WaitWindow instance at 0xa9c75ec>
combo: <gtk.ComboBox object (GtkComboBox at 0xaada0a4>
active: <GtkTreelter at 0xa580ab8>
Actually, I would have expected anaconda to realize that there was no link on
the device, but instead it happily tries to get a DHCP address. At least if
it's going to do this, it should fail gracefully.
I might also note that it says "An unhandled exception has occurred. This is
most likely a bug. Please save a copy of the detailed exception and file a bug
report against anaconda at http://bugzilla.redhat.com"
1) It is missing the ending period.
2) There is probably 20 pages of exception information. How does one go about
"saving a copy" without manually typing on another computer?
That was actually good enough for this one; fixed in CVS.
In general, saving to a floppy/memory stick or using the save to remote is the
way to grab it. In this case, the latter is a little harder
