Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 24352
Error during formatting
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:30:47 EDT
RedHat stops during installation. It starts formatting, then
the error "Cannot format swap device" appears, at which the
following was given out:
Traceback (innermost last):
line 20, in run
rc = self.todo.doInstall ()
File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/todo.py", line 1472, in
File "fstab.py", line 715, in mountFilesystems
raise SystemError, (errno, msg)
SystemError: (22, 'Invalid argument')
Local variables in innermost frame:
self: <fstab.GuiFstab instance at 8446f48>
msg: Invalid argument
(Btw, the session tracking in Bugzilla is not working correctly)
Note that the above error happened when I had checked 'verify bad blocks'.
I retried without this, and it worked.
Thanks for the info.
Looks alot like bug 16686.
How many hard drives are in your system and how big are they? Can you tell me
exactly what partitions you created and how big they were? Did you format all
I think we've resolved this issue with better error checking routines. Please
reopen if problem persists in future releases.
