Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 494131
Traceback with very basic partitionning scheme
Last modified: 2009-04-06 16:33:25 EDT
Description of problem:
Fedora 11 beta x86_64 DVD
I wanted to create the following partitionning scheme:
/dev/sda1 /boot ext3 200MB
/dev/sda2 / ext4 10240MB
/dev/sda3 /home ext4 20480MB
/dev/sda5 swap 2048MB
For the first 3 partitions, I checked « make it a primary partition » to be sure that they would be primary partitions (in the past, I had weird experiences with anaconda not respecting the order in which I was creating partitions).
When I tried to confirm the swap partition, I got an « unhandled exception » and anaconda crashed.
I would have attached the report, unfortunately, I couldn't get anaconda to save it, either on my local disk, on a USB key or by SCP (nothing happened when I clicked to confirm in each case).
Then at least take a picture of the traceback and attach it, or transcribe the first part so we know what the error is. Otherwise, there's really nothing we can do if we cannot reproduce this.
Sorry, as I can reproduce it 100%, I though it would be enough for you to debug it.
Anyway, here is a transcript of the first part of the trace:
anaconda 18.104.22.168 exception report

I took pictures of what follows (not all, it's way too long), so if you need something that comes after, just ask.
Btw, if you want the photos:
(there were too much to attach to the bug report)
Tell me if you don't need them, so that I don't fill up my FedoraPeople.
That's all I need to tell that it's a duplicate of an existing bug. Thanks for
filing. You can remove the pictures if you need space. Sorry to make you do all that extra work.
