Description Matthieu Araman 2009-03-07 12:17:38 EST
Description of problem:
anaconda/pyparted tries to access virtual partition of usb card reader and stuck on it (there's no card in the slots)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
boot.iso from 20090306

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. download boot.iso rawhide 20090306
2. use a pc with two sata disk and a usb/multi card reader internally connected
3. launch install
Actual results:
error after detecting partition 
error include 
File "/usr/lib64/python2.6/site-packages/parted/device.py", line 48, in __init__
self.__device = _ped.device_get(path)
_ped.DeviceException: Could not find device for path /dev/sdc

sda and sdb are the two real hard disk

dmesg extract gives

There is no card inside the reader

Expected results:
should be able to install rawhide on a pc with card reader!

Additional info:
same setup than bug 487976
Comment 1 Matthieu Araman 2009-03-07 13:25:29 EST
I removed the card reader and the message disappeared 
I can now go further in the installation process but I'm stuck by ther unrelated bug 488987
Comment 2 Matthieu Araman 2009-03-16 19:02:52 EDT
I did another try and replicate it with a recent build and uploaded an automatic trace to bugzilla.
It was automatically added to bug 489918, which is a duplicate of bug 488800.
So may be they are related.
Comment 3 Matthieu Araman 2009-03-30 07:10:00 EDT
looks fixed, with anaconda from 20090326 boot.iso.
I can go completely through the installation without unplugging my usb card reader.
