Anaconda Installer crash for Loopback install
Last modified: 2007-03-26 23:38:37 EDT
When installing to a loopback file on a Fat32 formated drive, I get the
Traceback (innermost last):
20, in run
rc = self.todo.doInstall ()
"/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/todo.py", line 1480, in
if self.method.systemMounted (self.fstab, self.instPath,
"/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/image.py", line 46, in
self.loopbackFile = mntPoint +
fstab.filesystemSpace(mntPoint) + \
IndexError: list index out of range
Note that this happens on 3 different machines, all with fat32 partitions.
It also happens independent of loopback size (from 300 mb to 1900). Most
noteable, however, is that this error only happens with the 7.0 respin
iso's. The original 7.0 release does not crash in this way.

LoopBack bug described above does not happen if you select a custom install,
but do not change any of the packages to be installed from the default
selections. Again, this problem does not show up on the non respin ISOs.
