f7t4 rescue CD fails to mount existing partitions
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:03 EST
Description of problem:
The f7t4 rescue CD fails to mount the existing partitions on my hard disks,
either read-write or read-only. Anaconda reports the following:
File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 87 in <module>
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/rescue.py", line 297, in runRescue
disks = upgrade.findExistingRoots(anaconda, upgradeany = 1)
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/upgrade.py", line 91, in findExistingRoots
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/partedUtils.py", line 1156, in openDevices
TypeError: messageWindow() got an unexpected keyword argument 'custom_buttons'
install exited abnormally
If I skip disk mounting I can see my partitions in /proc/partitions. (Well,
most of them: one of my disks has 20 partitions but /proc/partitions only shows
16.) I can mount partitions by hand.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
f7t4 rescue CD
I have two IDE controllers, one on the motherboard (pata_via) and one PCI
(pata_cmd64x). Each controller has one attached disk.
Should be fixed in CVS
