Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 251944
Traceback possibly when running %pre script
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:13 EST
Description of problem:
Get the following traceback doing a PXE/kickstart install (rest has scrolled off
File "/usr/lib/python2.5/subprocess.py", line 593, in __init__
File "/usr/lib/python2.5/subprocess.py", line 1079, in _execute_child
TypeError: coercing to Unicode: need string or buffer, NoneType found
Last vt3 message:
INFO: Running kickstart %%pre script(s)
Please attach the entire traceback message. It should still be on tty3 in its
entirety, unless it's a really long traceback.
It's definitely from executing the %pre script - removing the %pre section
allows it to proceed.
There is no traceback logged on tty3, just the normal anaconda messages, last of
which is the info message I mentioned above.
Can you attach your complete kickstart script?

Works in today's (20070814) rawhide.
Glad it works, because that was a truly bizarre bug and I wasn't getting much
closer to figuring out what was going on.
