Description Scott Douglass 2009-03-16 13:05:09 EDT
Description of problem:
While attempting to use virt-install to create a Rawhide QEMU VM,  the anaconda installation crashes.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
virt-install \
  --name fedora-xo \
  --ram 512 \
  --vcpus 1 \
  --disk path=/archive/vm/libvirt/fedora-xo.img,size=2.0 \
  --network bridge:br0 \
  --vnc \
  --connect qemu:///system \
  --os-type linux \
  --os-variant fedora10 \
  --hvm \
  --arch i686 \
  --location \
  --extra-args "ks= ip=dhcp" \

Kickstart file has:

rootpw olpcroot
firewall --enabled --ssh  
network  --bootproto=dhcp --device=eth0 --onboot=on
auth  --useshadow  --passalgo=md5
keyboard us
lang en_US
selinux --disabled
url --url=
timezone  America/New_York
bootloader --location=partition
clearpart --all --drives=sda
part /  --asprimary --fstype="ext3" --grow --size=1 --bytes-per-inode=4096 --ondisk=sda
logging --level=debug --host= --port=514
firstboot --enabled
xconfig --startxonboot
services --disabled=rpcidmapd,rpcgssd,rpcbind,portreserve,nfslock,netfs,mdmonitor,cups,auditd,exim 

Actual results:

ar 16 11:35:22 INFO    Running kickstart %%traceback script(s)
Mar 16 11:35:22 INFO    All kickstart %%traceback script(s) have been run

Expected results:
No crash.

Additional info:
Looks like some kind of type-o in yuminstall.py
