Anaconda crashes when trying to install the Mesa-devel-3.3-5.i386.rpm.
Installing Red Hat Linux 7 using 2 CDs burned with the images available on
RedHat's FTP site.
I choose partitionless installation, Workstation configuration installing
the default packages.
I give the suggested disk space to Red Hat (around 1080 Mb for data, and
32 for swap if I recall correctly).
Start installation, choosing English, Standard Keyboard, Spanish Layout, 2-
button mouse emulation 3-b, ATI Rage M 8Mb, and all the other default
In the middle of the installation, when anaconda tries to install the
named Mesa component the computer hangs, it seems it cannot find the file.
I have checked and the named file is on the CD.
This is the Anaconda Dump:
line 20, in run
rc = self.todo.doInstall ()
File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/todo.py", line 1543, in
File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/todo.py", line 1298, in
self.rpmFD = os.open(fn, os.O_RDONLY)
OSError: [Errno 2] No such file or
Local variables in innermost frame:
self: <todo.ToDo instance at 8431c18>
h: <header object at 88f6a48>
intf: <progress_gui.InstallProgressWindow instance at 8462cd8>
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Linux Red Hat 7 Public version, partitionless in a FAT32
2. Select Workstation configuration and all the default options.
3. Wait until anaconda reaches the Mesa-devel package, it crashes at that
Actual Results: Anaconda gives an error message and after pressing OK on
the dialog box, the computer resets.
Expected Results: Succesful installation.
Using a DELL Inspiron 3800 notebook.
I'm sorry, I was searching bugzilla for my bug before posting but I couldn't
find anything. Today I was browsing redhat support when I saw a fix to
something similar to my problem. It is fixed now.
