Description Jerry Williams 2007-01-22 02:59:52 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0; (R1 1.1); .NET CLR 1.1.4322; FDM; .NET CLR 2.0.50727)

Description of problem:
When I boot from USB flash drive and select:
Rescue installed system

It starts running anaconda and then dies
It terminates things and says you may safely reboot your system.

This is using the current rawhide diskboot.img file.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. When I boot from USB flash drive and select: Rescue installed system
2. Select English
3. Select us
4. Select NFS image
5. Enable IPv4 support, Dynamic IP configuration (DHCP)
6. Disable IPv6 support
7. Enter NFS server name:
8. Fedora Core directory:
9. It starts running anaconda and then dies

Actual Results:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 694, in <module>
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/rescue.py" line 272, in runRescue
TypeError: setMethod() takes exactly 2 arguments (1 given)
install exited abnormally [1/1]

Alt F2 shows:
-/bin/sh: error while loading shared libraries: libncurses.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Expected Results:
would continue to load and look for my fedora core installation

Additional info:
from: rescue.py
    271     anaconda.intf = RescueInterface(screen)
    272     anaconda.setMethod()

Looks like it is trying to do something with the screen and can't find the libncurses.so.5 library.

Only see:
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root     18 Jan 21 02:54 libncursesw.so.5 -> libncursesw.so.5.6
-r-xr-xr-x 1 root root 246904 Jan 21 02:54 libncursesw.so.5.6
in /usr/lib in minstg2.img file
