Anaconda eats CPU.
Last modified: 2013-01-10 00:03:21 EST
Description of problem:
Anaconda eats all cpu in a kvm vm on F10.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
anaconda used in F11-Alpha-i686-Live.iso.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. qemu-img create -f qcow2 f11.sys.qcow2 20G
2. sudo 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
3. Run gnome-terminal with top.
4. Run Install to Hard Drive
Anaconda eats all the cpu.
Anaconda behaves sane.
No change when using without smp and/or with an raw-image.
What stage of anaconda are you seeing this hang? Also, are you able to reproduce this with rawhide?
Well, I guess we don't make live CD images for rawhide, so that's not a very useful question to ask. Still, can you reproduce it outside of the live CD case? When F11 beta is released, can you try that as well?
Fabian, at what stage does anaconda hang? Can you get an strace of anaconda?
Fabian, thanks for the report.could you please reply to the previous question? If you won't reply in one month, I will have to close this bug as INSUFFICIENT_DATA. Thank you.

Strace of a stalling liveinst
There you go.
It appears right from the start.
I didn't capture it right now, but there are some kmod errors when starting liveinst from a terminal (easy to reproduce).
Triage: ASSIGNED: taking attachment id=333535 as sufficient information
The bug is not assigned to anybody, therefore NEW. Please leave my bugs alone.
Hopefully fixed in the next build...
Confirmed fixed in latest anaconda build, which is tagged for beta.
Seems to be fixed.
