Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 447254
Method string is not assigned correctly
Last modified: 2008-08-04 11:30:26 EDT
Description of problem:
There is a bug in nv modules which does not allow me to install F9 correctly
with my GeForce 8800 GTX. So I decided to use vesa driver. I loaded in rescue
mode and launched anaconda manually:
anaconda --xdriver=vesa --method=cdrom -G
But when I passed boot loader config screen anaconda gave crash dialog with a
lot of text but the main error message was:
Methodstr was referenced before assigned.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Load in rescue mode
2. anaconda --xdriver=vesa --method=cdrom -G
3. continue until boot loader config screen and press Next.
We'll need the complete error message with line numbers and everything in order
to fix this.
However, what happens if you pass the correct form of the method string? That
is, something like: --method=cdrom:///dev/sr0:/mnt/source
Tried it. Didn't help, but the error message is different with your string:
TypeError: coe.blah..forgot unicode: expected String, got NoneType.
Please attach the complete error message to this bug report.
