Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 50635
anacdump.txt after retrieving packages
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:35:23 EDT
Description of Problem:
Rawhide downloaded yesterday (7/31/2001).
Anaconda tracebacks after GRUB and root
password dialogs, and right after the screen
"Reading Package Information ..."
but before installing packages.
(will attach anacdump.txt)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install as usual (text mode, laptop)
"Excepton Occured" dialog.
On Alt-F3 console the following messages are present:
* Detected 48M of memory
* Swap attempt of 96M to 192M
The system has 36MB of ram and a 32MB swap partition
(the plan is to add a swapfile for 2.4 kernel)
After the partitioning, the Anaconda pops a warning
"You have allocated less swap space (31M) than
available RAM (48M) on your system. ..."
Kernel detects the memory size correctly (9216 pages).
Looks like Anaconda misdetects the memory size.
I have no idea if the misdetect is related to
the traceback. The bug is about the traceback!
Created attachment 25871 [details]
Another of my machines crapped in the same way,
so I think it has nothing to do with memory misdetect.
The installation is done over FTP and I re-downloaded
the comps file - it checks ok.
Comps file fixed to use rawhide-release again in cvs

I replaced redhat-release with rawhide-release in my comps
and it worked. When are you going to push it out to FTP?
