Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 222987
when attempting to write grub, unhandled exception occurs
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:53 EST
Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. When re-installing Fedora 6 (without re-formatting partitions)
this problem occurs every time, in the first time installation it didn't happen,
At the end of the installation, grub gives an unhandled exception and it doesn't
install at all.
File "/usr/lib/booty/bootloaderinfo.py", line 738, in "writeGrub"
also in line 1188, in "write"
Grub attempted to write to a partition, /boot, that was removed (accidentally).
When "upgrade install" is selected the Feodra installer Anaconda must check if
/boot is there and writable to avoid a disappointment at the end of installation.
