Description Glauber Costa 2006-12-12 07:31:34 EST
Description of problem:

Anaconda is crashing when I try to perform an installation of a paravirtualized
guest through nfs. I think it has few to do with virt-install itself, since at
this time, the installation has already started, and anaconda is in charge of
the process. 

I'm using a nfs repository at a remote machine. 

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. start an rhel5 installation through virt-install
2. after defining root password, anaconda crashes
Actual results:

Expected results:

Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2006-12-15 11:14:13 EST
What repository did you use?  This looks like a malformed mirror (the repomd.xml
isn't referencing the comps file as it should)
Comment 3 Glauber Costa 2006-12-15 14:38:03 EST
Regardless of the repository used and any problems with xml files, shouldn't we
catch this exception and leave a message saying "malformed mirror, please try
again" ?

But about the question, I used a local rsync of rhel5 nightly build. 
Comment 4 Chris Lumens 2007-03-12 15:01:15 EDT
We've already got a fix for this in Fedora.  I'll attach a patch to this bug
report shortly to correct it on the RHEL5 branch since I agree that we should be
smarter about handling error messages.

Comment 8 Lawrence Lim 2007-05-01 19:41:47 EDT
Chris, please update the .pot file for the new string and Chester (cc'ed) will
be able to look after the translation effort.

Comment 9 Chester Cheng 2007-05-01 20:42:58 EDT
Larry and Chris,  FYI, there's an auto mechanism to update the .po files once
the .pot file is uploaded.
Comment 10 Chris Lumens 2007-05-02 10:38:38 EDT
I've updated the anaconda.pot file.  Please let me know if there is anything
else that needs to be done on my end.
Comment 11 Lawrence Lim 2007-05-03 11:01:10 EDT
Reassigning to Chester for the localisation effort. Please move back to Chris
when the work is completed so the package can get rebuild with the latest po files.
Comment 12 Michelle Kim 2007-08-14 01:42:47 EDT
Latest po files are already committed into CVS and rebuilt. Resolving the bug.
