Description Jesse Keating 2008-03-06 14:17:50 EST
After formatting the filesystem, this traceback is seen.  Install method was
nfs, using netinst.iso

anaconda exception report
Traceback (most recent call first):
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/isys.py", line 337, in mount
    rc = _isys.mount(fstype, device, location, flags)

    isys.mount(self.anaconda.methodstr[4:], self.tree, "nfs")

From debug:

p fstype, device, location, flags
('nfs', '/mnt/source', '/mnt/source', None)


p self.tree

p methodstr

p self.anaconda.methodstr

So it's trying to mount /mnt/source, onto itself.  Yeah that's probably not
going to work (:

Happens with NFS ISO too.
Comment 3 Jesse Keating 2008-03-06 14:39:45 EST
This happens both using the UI to define an install method as well as using
method= from the boot cli.
Comment 4 Chris Lumens 2008-03-07 11:25:21 EST
This should be fixed in the next build of anaconda.
