Description of problem:

Booting and installing from the DVD tracebacks and umounts the system while attempting to start X and transition to stage#2.

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

How reproducible:
100% so far ... tested on x86_64 KVM guest, and x86_64 physical system ... both DVD installs

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot system with x86_64 DVD
2. Skip (or accept) DVD check
Actual results:
X fails to start, a traceback is shown and the system umounts all mounted volumes.  See attached screenshot (transcribed below):

Traceback (most recent call last):
 File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 921, in <module>
   anaconda.id = instClass.installDataClass(anaconda, extraModules, opts.display_mode, anaconda.backend)
 File "/usr/lib/anaconda/instdata.py", line 344, in __init__
 File "/usr/lib/anaconda/instdata.py", line 70, in reset
   self.iscsi = iscsi.iscsi()
 File "/usr/lib/anaconda/iscsi.py", line 227, in __init__
   self.fwinfo = self._queryFirmware()
 File "/usr/lib/anaconda/iscsi.py", line 275, in _queryFirmware
   result = iutil.execWithCapture(ISCSIADM, argv)
 File "/usr/lib/anaconda/iutil.py", line 138, in execWithCapture
   except OSError, (errno, msg):
 ValueError: need more than 0 values to unpack

Expected results:
 * Successfully transition to stage#2

Additional info:
 * added to F11Alpha for review as an alpha blocker.

I've ScrollLock'd the screen right before it umounts the drives ... and uploaded the log files ...

Jesse said this is not still happening with today's rawhide.  Is that a fact?
Comment 3 James Laska 2009-02-06 14:07:51 EST
Nope, no longer happening with F11 Alpha.
Comment 4 Chris Lumens 2009-02-06 14:19:36 EST
It's magic.
