Description Gregory Leblanc 2001-03-12 20:10:25 UTC
I received this message when doing an upgrade from RC1 to RC2.  I believe
this is after the packages installed, but I'm not 100% sure as I walked
away from the computer while the install ran.

Exception Occurred
Traceback(innermost last):
  File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 507, in ?
    intf.run(todo, test = test)
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.1//usr/lib/anaconda/text.py", line 1216, in run
    rc = apply (step[1](). step[2])
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.1//usr/lib/anaconda/text.py", line 643, in __call__
    in todo.doInstall ():
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.1//usr/lib/anaconda/todo.py", line 1749, in
    (p, self.inft.messageWindow, pkgTimer))
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.1//usr/lib/anaconda/todo.py", line 1748, in
    fn = self.method.getFilename(h, pkgTime)
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.1//usr/lib/anaconda/image.py", line 87, in
line 123, in umount
    rc = _isys.umount(what)
SystemError: (16, 'Device or resource busy')

Looking at this further, I suspect it was trying to eject the cdrom so that
it could use the second disk.

Were you using tty2 and poking around in a directory under /mnt/source?

Comment 2 Gregory Leblanc 2001-03-12 21:49:54 UTC
Hmm, yes, I was.  I needed a way to figure out what version of RH I was
installing, since the splash screen (lilo text, I guess) said 7.0.91, but I'd
labeled these CDs are RC2 (7.0.93).  Turns out the splash screen was wrong.  I
guess I should file that as another bug.
