anaconda exits on virtio install
Last modified: 2009-09-09 08:05:14 EDT
There are two sed expressions in grub-install that haven't been updated to handle virtio disks (/dev/vd*). The version in rawhide has the fix though so all that is needed is to push that update to F10.
Anaconda crashes during the final stages of installation, probably because of this (included screen shot). A respin of the installation media would be nice.
The screenshot doesn't appear to have been attached.
This probably isn't why anaconda is giving a traceback; it doesn't call grub-install. Regardless of that, we don't do installation media respins.

I wonder where that went... Oh well, attempt #2.
And it seems you are right. I fixed up grub-install as anaconda was installing packages, and it still crashed the same way.
Could you please retest with a prerelease of F11? There have been significant changes to the storage and bootloader sections of anaconda which makes it very difficult to determine whether or not your bug still exists. Thanks.
Its been a long time since this bug has been addressed. Having reached f12 alpha, it probably has been fixed. Feel free to reopen this issue if you continue to see this behavior.
