Description Denis Leroy 2007-09-14 14:09:50 EDT
While trying to upgrade my old Thinkpad T30 from FC-6 to F8-test2, the graphical
installer gets stuck with the message "829 of 828 packages installed". Mouse
cursor is moving, but process is otherwise stuck.

Going to console screen 1, i'm seeing scrolling messages :

rpmdb: PANIC: fatal region error detected: run recovery

In console screen 3, I have:

19:22:04 INFO : Preparing to install packages
19:36:54 WARNING : /usr/lib/anaconda/iw/progress_gui.py:55: GtkWarning: Failed
to set text from markup due to error parsing markup: Error on line 2: Character
'' is not valid at the start of an entity name; the & character begins an
entity; if this ampersand isn't supposed to be an entity, escape it as &

19:37:11 WARNING: /usr/lib/anaconda/iw/progress_gui.py:49: GtkWarning:
gtk_progress_set_percentage: assertion `percentage >= 0 && percentage <= 1.0` failed

This is on a Thinkpad T30 (i386), running FC-6. Upgrade done through network PXE.

Looks like i had a broken rpm database. After rebuilding the database, the
upgrade went fine. Well, the installer completed the upgrade. Now the kernel
crashes on boot, but that's another story...
