Description Kostas Georgiou 2007-09-02 17:46:33 EDT
Another small fix for iscsi to fix the following error:
Traceback (most recent call first):
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/iscsi.py", line 117, in login
    if _login(node, portal):
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/iscsi.py", line 233, in addTarget
    if not t.login():
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/iw/autopart_type.py", line 180, in addIscsiDrive
    self.anaconda.id.iscsi.addTarget(ip, port, user, pw, self.intf)
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/iw/autopart_type.py", line 232, in addDrive
    rc = self.addIscsiDrive()
NameError: global name 'portal' is not defined

Comment 2 Kostas Georgiou 2007-09-02 18:10:53 EDT
Note that the patch is against F7 since rahide doesn't work under xen for me at
the moment (no network).

Unfortunately this isn't enough to get iscsi running in the installer. iscsid
fails to work because the crc32p,libcrc32p modules aren't available (similar to

Downloading and insmoding crc32p,libcrc32p in %pre gets things going but for
some strange reason that I can not begin to understand *some* partitions
dissapear after swap gets enabled (/sys/block/sda/ only has sda2 for example)
and the installation fails :(

RHEL5 works fine with the same iscsi target (scsi-target-utils from rawhide) so
it's not the target as far as I can tell.

Comment 3 Kostas Georgiou 2007-09-08 21:06:34 EDT
Closing since rawhide has been changed quite a bit and there is no point fixing
the F7 bugs. I'll open new bugs with the issues in current rawhide.
