Description Sijis Aviles 2009-06-10 00:19:17 EDT
Created attachment 347148 [details]
cli output liveinst and anaconda

Description of problem:
I'm unable to launch the "Install to Hard Drive" on the liveCD feature to install Fedora 11 (F11).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
[liveuser@localhost Desktop]$ rpm -qa | grep anaconda

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot computer using i686 LiveCD
2. Double-click on "Install to Hard Drive" 
Actual results:
No output to screen. No error/warning.

Expected results:
Begin install wizard

Additional info:
The only way I was able to notice that there was an issue was running the installer through the cli as root. Regardless if I ran "/usr/bin/liveinst" or "anaconda" the error was the same.

As an added note, I'm using a Dell Latitude D620 with a Core Duo and 2GB RAM.

Was NetworkManager running?

Sosreport of system.
Comment 4 Sijis Aviles 2009-06-10 13:09:57 EDT
Yes, it was running last night.
Its running now too.

[root@localhost liveuser]# service NetworkManager status
NetworkManager (pid  2463) is running...
[root@localhost liveuser]# service network status
Configured devices:
Currently active devices:
lo eth0
[root@localhost liveuser]# chkconfig --list | grep -i "network"
NetworkManager 	0:off	1:off	2:on	3:on	4:on	5:on	6:off
network        	0:off	1:off	2:off	3:off	4:off	5:off	6:off
[root@localhost liveuser]# 

The only network related oddity is that it appears that my wireless network card is detected but not loaded and it isn't able to 'see' any wireless networks (for obvious reasons). Although currently I'm plugged in and using it to update this bug.

Yesterday I was trying to install using the wireless. I'm trying again right now and i'm getting the same error as last night. I also stopped NetworkManager and started network service but i wasn't able to get a networking connection.
I'll upload the sosreport from last night if that's of any use.

Ah, b43 wireless which we can't ship the firmware for.  I suspect NetworkManager is sort of seeing the device but not entirely (since there's no firmware) and we're not catching an exception we should.
Comment 6 Sijis Aviles 2009-06-10 14:53:07 EDT
When i was trying earlier today i was plugged in. I just wanted to make that clear.

What other information do you need from me?

Based on the traceback in the opening comment, this is a dupe of 506013.
