Description Kazunori Asayama 2009-03-13 06:58:44 EDT
Description of problem:

On PLAYSTATION 3 (60GB model), installer crashes with DeviceException.

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


How reproducible:

Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start installer.
2. Go to 'Warning! This is pre-relase software!' page and select 'Install anyway'.
Actual results:

anaconda crashes with the following message:

Traceback (most recent call first):
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/parted/device.py", line 48, in __init__
    self.__device = _ped.device_get(path)
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/storage/devices.py", line 671, in __init__
    self.partedDevice = parted.Device(path=self.path)
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/storage/devicetree.py", line 980, in addUdevDevice
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/storage/devicetree.py", line 1272, in populate
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/storage/__init__.py", line 221, in reset
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/storage/__init__.py", line 64, in storageInitialize
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/dispatch.py", line 205, in moveStep
    rc = stepFunc(self.anaconda)
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/dispatch.py", line 128, in gotoNext
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/text.py", line 697, in run
  File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 1012, in <module>
DeviceException: Could not find device for path /dev/sda

Expected results:

Installer goes on.

Additional info:

/dev/sda should be one of flash memory card readers on PS3 60GB model. When I tried rawhide, no flash memory card was in the readers.

Other platforms than PS3, including x86 PCs, may have the same problem if any empty card readers are connected. However, I haven't tried that.
