Description Alan Robinson 2000-12-22 14:52:34 UTC
When installing to a loopback file on a Fat32 formated drive, I get the 
following error:

Traceback (innermost last):

"/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/iw/progress_gui.py", line 

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)[0][0] + \
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.
