Description Stefan Assmann 2009-06-30 06:41:37 EDT
Description of problem:
When I try to make a network installation of rawhide from the URL http://ftp.uni-erlangen.de/pub/Linux/MIRROR.fedora/core/development/x86_64/os/ it fails with the following error:
Unable to complete install '<class 'ConfigParser.NoSectionError'> No section: 'images-i386'
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/virt-manager/virtManager/create.py", line 1501, in do_install
    dom = guest.start_install(False, meter = meter)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/virtinst/Guest.py", line 539, in start_install
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/virtinst/Guest.py", line 594, in _prepare_install
    meter = meter)

    self._prepare_kernel_and_initrd(guest, distro, meter)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/virtinst/DistroInstaller.py", line 182, in _prepare_kernel_and_initrd

  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/virtinst/OSDistro.py", line 133, in acquireKernel
    scratchdir, type, distro)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/virtinst/OSDistro.py", line 119, in _acquireMedia
    return (store.acquireKernel(guest, fetcher, progresscb),
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/virtinst/OSDistro.py", line 215, in acquireKernel
    kernelpath = self._getTreeinfoMedia("kernel")
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/virtinst/OSDistro.py", line 272, in _getTreeinfoMedia
    return self.treeinfo.get("images-%s" % t, mediaName)
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.6/ConfigParser.py", line 531, in get
    raise NoSectionError(section)
NoSectionError: No section: 'images-i386'

However making an installation of F11 from this URL http://ftp.uni-bayreuth.de/linux/fedora/linux/releases/11/Fedora/x86_64/os/ works fine

The rawhide repo you have there has totally fubar  .treeinfo file


Your tree there is x86_64, but the .treeinfo file is claiming its i386, and more over the data is still incomplete, missing the 'images-x86_64' section that you would expect for x86_64. Either the mirror you're using is broken, or the tool that created rawhide spins is broken. 

Changing component to pungi, because that's my best guess as to what tools responsible for .treeinfo generation. Do re-assign elsewhere if I'm wrong.

It's actually anaconda's buildinstall, and it seems fixed now, although I don't see any obvious fixes in anaconda.git
