Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 47748
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:34:32 EDT
Description of Problem:
The start of /tmp/install.log is corrupt following a laptop install
in text mode which died at the final stage but otherwise appeared to
In bug 47147 I described a laptop install which resulted in an anaconda
crash at the end but which otherwise appeared to have worked. Looking at
/tmp/install.log I see a top line of
Module /usr/share/fonts/install/xttfm.ttfm doesn't exist, ignored!
Then I see ^@^@^@^@^@^@ for seven screens, then without a linebreak I
find "Installing umb-scheme." and then it appears normal.
upgrade logs tend to have "The following were available but not
upgraded" at the end. I can't remember whether install logs should
have the same. There wasn't anything those. The final lines were
/usr/share/xml-i18n-tools directory created with perms 0755.
'file' tells me that /tmp/install.log is a data file.
Is all this down to the failure to complete the installer, or something
installs don't print out the "following were available but not upgraded." This
is almost certainly a packaging problem. Please attach the full log.

install.log with weirdo characters
Someone beat me to it, but I can't see 48423. I don't know whether the
few differences are significant or not. I suspect not, but there you are.
Apologies for delay :(
fixed in cvs
