Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:02 EST
Description of problem:
When running Anaconda from inside a LiveCD environment, during the actual
package installation phase returnLocalHeader() fails causing Anaconda to crash
with a message saying could not retrieve package header.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Run Anaconda under a LiveCD environment.
Steps to Reproduce:
I will provide a CD image you can use to test this.
The URL for this disc image will be provided in my next reply.
Here is the LiveCD image I created which demonstrates this problem:
It is 170MB.
Simply burn it to a CD, boot it, login as:
Simply follow the Anaconda installation procedure.
This demonstrated the failure with returnLocalHeader().

Reproduced in vmware.
Reproduced in VMWare
Reproduced in VMWare Workstation
Anaconda continues to install packages:
Is this reproducible with F7 test 3 or rawhide?
I just dove into rawhide and created a LiveCD, with Anaconda and Kadischi
installed with the package payload, and initiated the install operation, I do
not see any problems so far. Everything works good.
Partitioning, package selection, installation all are going great, as if it were
a stock installer disc.
I will go ahead and stress test the Anaconda in development and if I come across
any more issues I will open a new bug report.
Thank you guys for your time.
Closing out on the basis of comment #6. Thanks for the testing.
