Anaconda Crash detail

Description of problem: When trying to install F10 x86_64 from DVD anaconda crashes during the partition selection.

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

How reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select "Remove all partitions..."
2. Select "Encrypt system"
3. Deselect sdb (only have sda selected)
4. Select "Next"
Actual results: Anaconda crashes

Expected results: Anaconda formats and partitions the hard drive appropriately.

Additional info: Just tried it without selecting "encrypt system".  Still crashes.
Comment 1 eric@christensenplace.us 2008-12-14 13:02:34 EST
I just tried to do the installation by selecting both sda and sdb (same configuration as above) and anaconda did not crash.  If I select just sdb, however, anaconda crashes.

What exactly was on those drives before the installation? Can you please describe the setup in more detail?

I tried F10 x86_64 on 64bit virtual machine with two drives. Used the exact same procedure and got the password dialog for new encrypted partition.

Also, is the media OK? Did you run a media check?

Bug #484722 is an F11 alpha bug with an identical stack trace and describes a reproducer in more detail:

  qemu-kvm -cdrom Fedora-11-Alpha-i686-Live/F11-Alpha-i686-Live.iso -m
1024 -usb -hda f11.sys.qcow2 -vga std  -net user -net nic -smp 2

For reference, the stack trace is:

This should be fixed in rawhide, as the code involved has been adapted to work with the new pyparted.
Comment 6 Fabian Deutsch 2009-02-23 10:28:16 EST
That sounds good.
Is jigdo a way to build an ISO from the current rawhide? So I am able to test it.
Comment 7 Fabian Deutsch 2009-02-23 14:56:12 EST
I'll use the livecd-tools.
Comment 8 Fabian Deutsch 2009-02-24 11:50:23 EST
I can't use the livecd-toosl because of

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.

I'm no longer seeing this problem with F11.
