anaconda log

We don't seem to be falling back to network installs.  This is just a simple boot of boot.iso and "next next next".  Attaching logs.

yum/__init__.py:341.  yum thinks the repo config files should be in /mnt/sysimage/etc/anaconda.repos.d but anaconda puts them in /etc/anaconda.repos.d  According to Seth in IRC, there used to be a test here that'd check the existence of the directory before reading the config files and that test needs to be added back.
Comment 5 seth vidal 2009-03-16 14:24:25 EDT
fixed in upstream yum and I'll build a new rawhide build in a moment.
Comment 6 Jesse Keating 2009-03-16 14:45:17 EDT
I'm nitpicky, putting this back into modified until it has actually been tagged for the beta.
Comment 7 Christopher Aillon 2009-03-17 11:35:20 EDT
Created an updates.img with the new yum python modules from http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=94362 and booted using


I can confirm this fixes this issue.

The today's rawhide boot.iso seems fixed in regards to this issue.
Comment 9 daniele annesi 2009-06-20 07:55:18 EDT
Fedora 11 on a Dell T610.
The boot do not work; it hang up with message "Press ENTER to begin installation".
I substitute vesamenu.c32 with the version on fedora 10 and resolve the boot.
After boot and partitioed with default hard disk ( Controller PERC/1, raid 5 )
i get the following error:
"Unable to read group information from repositories. This
is a problem with the generation of your install tree."
And now ?
