From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (Win98; U)
Description of problem:
Anaconda prompted for the insertion of a floppy on which it then saved a text file
Steps to Reproduce:
1. After anaconda installation failure, I could not reboot the system
Actual Results: Rebooting resulted in the characters "LI" appearing in the upper left corner of the display
and the looping through the rebooting process ... .... ....
Here's the contents of the text file written by anaconda named anacdump.txt
Traceback (innermost last):
File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 520, in ?
intf.run(todo, test = test)
File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.1//usr/lib/anaconda/text.py", line 1126, in run
rc = apply (step(), args)
File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.1//usr/lib/anaconda/text.py", line 551, in __call__
if todo.doInstall ():
File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.1//usr/lib/anaconda/todo.py", line 2057, in doInstall
self.instPath + "/var/lib/rpm.rpmsave")
OSError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory
Local variables in innermost frame:
pkgTimer: <timer.Timer instance at a335c30>
msg: File exists
w: <text.ProgressWindow instance at bbe1150>
syslog: <todo.InstSyslog instance at 84f65a0>
(followed by a long string of text without newlines)
Created attachment 22907 [details]
file created by anaconda at the time of the failure (plain text but with a very long line at the end)
Is /var, /var/lib/ or /var/lib/rpm a symlink?
