Description Karl Viklund 2008-11-28 03:55:22 EST
Description of problem:
After installing the sytem for the first time as a Virtual guest the system shows an error in the smolt module on first boot.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora 10 release in VirtualBOX 2.0.6 32bit on Windows Vista SP1.
2. Boot the system.
Actual results:
Error in smolt in first boot.

Expected results:
Error in smolt in first boot

Additional info:
Alright. I'm no professional Linux guru or a developer. So I don't really know what Information is required. I have reinstalled the system twice with the same result. It's nothing serious. The system just skips the module. I'm subnitting this report because the system asked me so nicely to do so. So if there is any extra information you need I will be happy to give it to you. I have included the special file created containing the report. I hope. The file was named "firstboot-0Xsn3X"

I was unable to include the file but here is what the Error-file contained.

Traceback (most recent call last):

Comment 2 Mike McGrath 2008-11-28 10:46:24 EST
interesting.  I'll take a look.  This might actually be a couple of things.  What language were you using?
Comment 3 Christer Lind 2008-11-29 11:00:53 EST
Got the same problem on a Fedora 10 installation, no other os involved. First on an update from Fedora 9, then I tried a new installation with same result.
System config:
CPU Pentium4 2 GHz, 1 GB ram, ATI Radeon 2400, PATA and SATA HDD (PATA boot), language=swedish.
Comment 4 Mike McGrath 2009-06-22 15:37:24 EDT
Ok, thanks for the info, I fixed this a while back I believe but didn't update the ticket (sorry about that)

I think that for future versions of smolt this won't be a problem.  Thanks for the report.
