Description IBM Bug Proxy 2007-10-25 15:06:16 EDT
Installation of fedoracore8 test3 abnormally exited after selecting Installation
methods(NFS/Hard-drive) and before starting the Anaconda installer by throwing a
error "TypeError: Expected a string, install exited abnormally [1/1]", I am
attaching screenshot. 

------Hardware Environment------
    Machine type : x445
    Cpu type :IA-32
    Is this reproducible? Yes

-----Describe the steps:----------
     1. Boot with fedora core 8 test3(boot.iso) present in images/boot.iso of DVD.
     2. After booting up, select language, country,then.. Installation method.
     3. I tried with NFS and Hard-driver options.
     4. After giving the path and ip of nfs, it shows anaconda starting....and 
        suddenly encounters the error.
I verified this bug on x335a and confirmed that its a "machine dependent" by
installing fc8t3 images on x335a successfully.I used the anaconda installer
resides at isolinux/vmlinuz isolinux/initrd.img for booting up and installed
using NFS server.It worked fine.

There were a function with is returning not a string value where it was expected.

Hi Redhat,

I verified this bug against FC8GA on x445 machine. I am able to reproduce this
bug. I think patch has not been picked up for FC8GA release.

Hello Red Hat,

Have you had the chance to check for this issue? F8 GA ISO has trouble with this
machines. Any chance we will be able to include this patch to anaconda?

Thank you.

It's been over 3 months we opened this bug against Fedora 8 and provided a patch
for the issue (quite simple really, but still blocking the install).
As the current schedule for Fedora 9, we would like to know if this correction
will be in the alpha or any subsequent release? We sure would like this to be
available for Fedora 9.

Thank you.

PS: the bug is set to "low priority" but "urgent severity", which makes me a bit
