Anaconda crash during package installation
Last modified: 2008-08-11 09:36:44 EDT
Description of problem: Using default values, anaconda crashes while installing
packages. Package that it crashed on was specspo-15-1.noarch.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): Version in F9=Preview
How reproducible: During installation, accept all default values (with the
exception of adding the LUKS encryption).
Crashes during installation of packages.
Should complete the installation process.
Additional info: Still trying to get the debugging information. There is an
additional bug that came up when you have a flash drive in the USB port to
gather the debugging information. It says: Assertion (part -> disk_specific !=
NULL) at dos.c:1423 in function msdos_partition_get_flag() failed. This has
completely locked the computer up and will not allow me to see the debugging
text behind it.
What type of install? And putting onto a new USB stick is going to have
problems right now from the dialog -- you can just switch to tty2 and grab
/tmp/anaconda.log (bring up the network, scp or manually put it on a usb stick)
This is an installation of Fedora 9 (Preview) (32-bit version). I'm in the
process of attempting the installation again so I can grab the information.
Just did the installation, again, and am still having problems getting the log
off. It did not crash on the same package as it did last time. It actually got
This makes it sound like read errors off the cd -- if you look at tty4 (or in
/tmp/syslog), do you see read errors off of the drive?
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
Reporter, could you please reply to the previous question? If you won't reply in
one month, I will have to close this bug as INSUFFICIENT_DATA. Thank you.
Sorry I forgot to respond to this. I did not see read errors off of the drive.
I think this has been fixed but can verify if need be.
If you could verify that this is fixed (either in F9 Final or in a recent
release of rawhide), it would be appreciated.
Just reinstalled F9 on a box using the latest official release and all worked well.
