Description Matthieu Araman 2009-03-01 17:43:55 EST
Description of problem:
Can't install with latest rawhide.
Can't even do a rescue mode.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
using boot.iso /cdrom from rawhide 20090227 8h00

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot 
2. select install or rescue mode
3. install process launch anaconda 
Actual results:
anaconda exit and the system ask for reboot
same thing with normal install or even rescue mode

Expected results:
should run

Additional info:
I could initialy install a system succesfully on this pc with the Fedora 11 alpha dvd x64. 
the pc has two 1To Disk configured with Linux raid in mirroring mode.
partition :
/dev/md0  -> /boot ext3 200MB
/dev/md1 : the reste
/dev/md1 contain :
only a part of /dev/md1 is allocated
there are 4 partitions : 
/ (ext4) , /home(ext4) ,/var(ext4) and swap

The Fedora 11 alpha broke after a rawhide update and a reboot.
looks like there was a problem finding md0 or /  

So I tried to reinstall completely with a recent rawhide boot.iso and got stuck by this.

Error message

This is fixed in the current build of pyparted.  Please update your tree and it should be working for you.

I can't find a more recent boot.iso in any of the active fedora mirrors.(I think I tried at least 10 different...)
looks like they either don't mirror rawhide, have excluded the images directory or have a low frequency update.
Do you know any mirror really mirroring rawhide with fresh thing ?
In the negative, I will wait for several more days until updated thing reach the mirrors...
Comment 3 Matthieu Araman 2009-03-07 12:19:51 EST
found a more recent boot.iso from 20090306
I don't knwow if this is fixed as I'm now stuck with another message from pyparted, for which I opened bug 489105
