Description of problem:
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to install
Actual Results: It works all fine till installing the image. Seems, that
anaconda tries to unmount something (probably /mnt/source) and stops with
Traceback (innermost last):
File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.1//usr/lib/anaconda/iw/progress_gui.py", line
19, in run
rc = self.todo.doInstall ()
File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.1//usr/lib/anaconda/todo.py", line 1782, in
File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.1//usr/lib/anaconda/fstab.py", line 632, in
isys.umount(mntPoint, removeDir = 0)
.py", line 134, in umount
raise ValueError, "isys.umount() can only umount by mount point"
ValueError: isys.umount() can only umount by mount point
After stopping anacondo following messages appear:
unmounting filesystems ...
/mnt/source unmount failed ()
you may safely reboot your system
It4s impossible for me to install redhat 7.1
Did you try setting a mount point for a DOS partition? If so, try doing the
install again without setting a mount point for any DOS partitions. You can add
them later to the /etc/fstab file. Does this help?
bfox: yes i4ve tried this. i4ve got some more details now. this error only
comes up, if i customize the installation (sources).
if i customize installation without selecting kernel-development installing
works. if i customize installation without selecting kernel-development , but
selecting single packages (dev-packages and normal) anaconda crashes again with
the same error.
What partitions did you make and how big are they?
Looks like a dupe of bug #38448
yes i think it4s nearly the same problem as in bug #38448, but my customized
installation also crashes if i don4t set a mount point for the DOS partition. I
think there must be a problem with selecting and deselecting single packages.
/dev/hda1 DOS 1.5 GB
/dev/hda2 linux 2.5 GB used as /
/dev/hda5 swap 128 MB
Now I4ve installed RedHat using customized installation, selecting the main
packages (not servers and kernel-development) and afterwards customize it using
the packagemanager. I4m not satisfied with this, but it works :-)
That's strange because I tested the individual package selection screen pretty
thoroughly. So selecting dev-packages causes the installer to crash for you?
