Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 438830
Anaconda exception upgrading to F9 beta
Last modified: 2008-04-15 17:10:48 EDT
Description of problem:
Anaconda 188.8.131.52 threw when trying to upgrade the boot loader in an upgrade
from F8 to F9 Beta. See attached stack trace and log files.
I downloaded the boot image for the x86_64 F9 Beta that was released today,
booted from it and chose to upgrade my existing x86_64 F8 installation using an
URL install from the site I downloaded the boot image from. I also chose to
update the boot loader during the install process (the recommended option).
This was on my ASUS F3SR notebook, dual core, 64bit, ATI HD2400.

anaconda stack trace and log files
I'm seeing same backtrace (on both x86_64 and i386, and from a variety of
starting points for upgrade, F8, F9-alpha, random rawhide snapshot).

anacdump.txt from f8 upgrade to f9 on thinkpad x61
anacdump.txt from upgrade on Thinkpad X61 from F8 to F9. The new 2.6.25 kernel
from F9 was successfully
added to my grub.conf and all old F8 kernels removed, EXCEPT for the install
reference I created by hand. It's my way of starting the install--to copy from
the isolinux dir on
the install media and then creating a stanza referencing /boot/vmlinuz-install
in my grub.conf. hth
If you want somebody from engineering who is able to reproduce this, let me know.
Fixed in git
