Anaconda fails to upgrade FC6 to F7 with a python exception (with workaround)
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:07 EST
Description of problem:
During an upgrade from FC6 to F7 after selecting the boot loader
options, there was a python exception in:
/usr/lib/anaconda/textw/upgrade_bootloader_text.py line 152
After checking this I found the cause: an empty line in my /etc/modprobe.conf.
Removing empty lines before update solved the problem.
Put empty line(s) into /etc/modprobe.conf before upgrade.
The code in this line is the culprit:
if l.strip() == "#":
It assumes a non-empty line.
