Description Brian Brock 2001-03-06 17:52:41 EST
Anaconda crashes with traceback under (at least) the following

qa0306.0 tree / anaconda-7.1-2.20010305163
text mode
Installation over NFS
laptop installation (Dell Inspiron 3500) 
defaults for all other choices (english, firewall rules, etc.)

On the screen when the X configuration is about to be tested (post- package
installation), select the "skip" button (instead of testing the selected X
configuration) causes the traceback.

Traceback to be attached shortly.

Please let me know if more details are required

Problem still occuring in qa0307.0 tree.  I don't think this is the same as bug
#30870,  if I read Trond's notes right, he chooses a different path than I do in
the installer, and the difference is the cause of my error (and resulting

Attaching traceback for qa0307.0 tree shortly.

... ummm -- my test condition in 31764 was not a striaght skip, but a failed
config ... is the logic path the same (it would seem not ...) and was it tested?
Comment 11 Brian Brock 2001-03-14 18:15:27 EST
Good point.  The laptop that I opened this bug on originally failed
Xconfigurator, it now (as of today's build) works properly, so your case for
#31764 was not tested fully.
Comment 12 Brian Brock 2001-03-14 18:16:54 EST
... make that not tested directly by me.
Comment 13 R P Herrold 2001-03-14 21:15:03 EST
Re-open for confirmation of tested path on failed rather than skipped Xconfigurator
Comment 14 Brent Fox 2001-03-15 10:52:52 EST
The logic path is the same.  The original bug was trying to unlink a file that
wasn't there...
