anaconda fails with cannot unmount image /mnt/source
Last modified: 2008-01-23 03:38:01 EST
Description of problem:
During installation today using rawhide 20080115 boot.iso stage2.img net
install, anaconda complains about not being able to unmount /mnt/source (see
attach). The RPM it had downloaded is also shown in VT as corrupt.
Installation could not continue.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Have not attempted reinstall yet.
Created attachment 291792 [details]
error message, text installer

umount /mnt/source on VT 2, fails
Clicking OK in the installer causes the shown error message to be repeated for
each time, exception in _unmountCD.
I got this too on an http install
going to a shell and mounting $ANYTHING on /mount/source, to give it something
to unmount, got past it.
But then I too had a corrupt and/or unfound downloaded rpm, and install bailed.
so, it appears that it's confused about whether it has install media:
if self.currentMedia is None:
self.currentMedia = None
but this was a net install... yet I got to unmountCD?
also, getting past that, I hit a dialog with:
"the file blah cannot be opened... verify installation source.\nIf you exit,
your system will be left in an inconsistent state ...." [Reboot][Reboot]
this is because I failed to d/l an rpm through my mod_cache server, I think -
tho maybe anaconda should retry?
Anyway, the fun 2 choices between reboot & reboot:
def _handleFailure(self, package):
if not self.isodir and self.currentMedia:
buttons = [_("Re_boot"), _("_Eject")]
buttons = [_("Re_boot"), _("_Reboot")]
I think this will be fixed in the next build of anaconda. Since you guys have
no problems with having corrupted or missing packages, please give it a try and
let me know. Thanks.
Just did an install on the rescue cd i386 iso built by releng and this is no
longer an issue at least there. (I didn't see anaconda version for it, but its
current rawhide as of my comment)
If the other posters see this occur again report back; I'm going to close it for
