anaconda exception in Live copy to drive
Last modified: 2008-06-10 21:51:50 EDT
Description of problem:
During install to disk from Live CD, after the drive selection and about half
way through the copy to disk, I get an anaconda exception which terminates the
anaconda None exception report
Traceback (most recent call first):
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/livecd.py", line 191, in doInstall
buf = os.read(osfd, readamt)
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/backend.py", line 215, in doInstall
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/dispatch.py", line 208, in moveStep
rc = stepFunc(self.anaconda)

File "/usr/lib/anaconda/gui.py", line 1299, in handleRenderCallback
OSError: [Errno 5] Input/output error
(Entire exception report attached.)
Hardware is Supermicro 6011D with two P3 processors, 2GB of RAM, Adaptec AIC-
7899W (hardware RAID removed), two 36GB SCSI drives on the 7899's A port, Intel
82559 ethernet. (http://www.supermicro.com/products/system/1U/6011/SYS-
6011D.cfm for hardware reference.)
I did verify that the Live Install media is good with the built-in check.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
(Fedora-9-i686-Live.iso from 5/13/08)
Always (3 for 3, same place, same result)
Steps to Reproduce:
0. Low level format two identical SCSI hard drives (format shows no errors)
1. Boot Live CD
2. Install to Disk
2. Select language, etc. (english, US, Los Angeles time zone)
3. Set up hardcoded IP address, etc, for network
4. Custom hard drive setup, set up RAID arrays on two identical 36GB SCSI
dev/md0: 1984 MB - boot
dev/md1: 30976 MB - /
dev/sda3: 2040 MB - swap (no raid here)
5. Proceed when it warns about deleting all data on drives.
6. Watch the progress bar inch across until about half-way, we get the anaconda
exception pop-up. Details attached.
"anaconda None exception" and installation failed.

Can you also attach /tmp/syslog to this bug report? Thanks.
Sorry, since it won't boot, I can't do that.
You'd find /tmp/syslog while the live CD is running, not after you have
installed. Or are you saying that the live CD itself will no longer boot?
I'm also having a similar problem at the end of copying from CD2. The computer
is not connected to the internet and it will not let me save to a disk so I
can't put the report on here but I'd love to see the answer when you have one.
