installation from live-image still doesnt work
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:06 EST
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.
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?
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:
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.
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...
(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.
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.
