Description of problem:

The problem is described in 
where also the anaconda traceback is attached.

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

This time I used anaconda from F7 plus installclass.py from CVS trunk (to fix 
#242083) and livecd.py (to fix #241754), also from trunk.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

config and iso image availabe at

What sort of partitioning selections did you make?  Can you attach /tmp/syslog
to this bug report when the exception occurs?

Comment 2 Holger Levsen 2007-06-28 15:32:01 UTC
Quoting from the used config file which is available 
(as described in this bug :) the build log is at 
http://xs-dev.laptop.org/xs-live-installer/200706081955-build.log - the 
resulting iso at 

# The following is the partition information you requested
# Note that any partitions you deleted are not expressed
# here so unless you clear all partitions first, this is
# not guaranteed to work
clearpart --linux --drives=sda
part /boot --fstype ext3 --size=100 --ondisk=sda
part pv.6 --size=0 --grow --ondisk=sda
volgroup VolGroup00 --pesize=32768 pv.6
logvol / --fstype ext3 --name=LogVol00 --vgname=VolGroup00 --size=1024 --grow
logvol swap --fstype 
swap --name=LogVol01 --vgname=VolGroup00 --size=512 --grow --maxsize=1024

I'll provide /tmp/syslog shortly, once I've redone an installation with that

Here is a copy of the install log:

Comment 4 Sean Bruno 2007-07-08 22:12:07 UTC

Isn't a valid URL any longer.  Please just attach the failures to the ticket, so
there isn't any issues with looking over your errors.

Comment 5 Holger Levsen 2007-07-09 16:53:52 UTC
You hit an unfortunate moment in time, when xs-dev's webserver was 
misconfigured. It should stay up now ;)

I'm attaching the log and config-file now anyway.

any news on this bug? it's currently a little blocker for the olpc 
schoolserver installation "cd"s... 

Comment 9 Jeremy Katz 2007-07-16 21:05:32 UTC
(Sorry, I've been traveling)

The attached bug is the unfixed livecd.py.  And since you sent mail, I *think*
I've fixed what you were hitting from the earlier mail (if you have a separate
/usr, things were falling over due to dangling symlinks in the redhat-artwork
package).  I'm not quite sure why you'd hit that iwthout a separate /usr, though.   

Downloading (slowly) your current iso to hopefully give it a try before I leave
today, but I'm then out of the office again tomorrow.

Comment 10 Holger Levsen 2007-08-21 18:19:40 UTC
finally I can confirm that this bug indeed has been fixed and this bug is a 
duplicate of #244913

Using anaconda/livecd.py from 2007-06-26 works nicely.
