Description pgaltieri 2009-02-07 17:20:52 EST
Description of problem:
When trying to install to disk from the Live CD I get an error popup indicating it was unable to mount /boot. The error is:

DBus error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply

This happens on a Dell Inspiron 8600 Laptop

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
F11 i686 Live CD

How reproducible:
Tried 2 times and it occurred both times.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot off Live CD
2.Take defaults
3.Just before it copies image to disk you get the pop up
Actual results:
Got unable to mount /boot error message

Expected results:
No error pop up

Additional info:
Clicking the OK button does not make the pop up go away. It does continue to load image to disk.  

After indicating a successful install when I rebooted I got:

mount: could not find filesystem /dev/root

Can you attach /tmp/anaconda.log from when you get this error message to this bug report?  Your fstab might also be helpful.  Thanks.

install log

Tried the install from live CD and this time it worked.  However I still got the can't mount /boot message.  I have attached the anaconda.log file.

I think this is an interaction with devicekit.  I've got a fix pending, although it may or may not make beta.

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