Attached traceback automatically from anaconda.

Comment 2 Clyde E. Kunkel 2009-07-07 14:17:54 UTC
This traceback occurred only after seeing that LVs and raids were not detected during storage probes and clicking the back button, going to tty2 and activating the LVs (lvm vgchange -ay) and then going back to tty6 and clicking next (custom partitioning having already been selected).

So, looks like two bugs--this one and a new one: anaconda 12.1 not detecting LVM and raid (will enter bz shortly).

Setting severity to high based on http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/BugStatusWorkFlow#Severity

Comment 8 Adam Williamson 2009-07-17 18:53:29 UTC
raising to urgent: this is affecting a wide range of (and possibly all) rawhide installations.

Blocks Fedora 12 Alpha for obvious reasons.

Dlehman is working this one, he has a patch that would fix the immediate
problem of the traceback, but it seems like something more is going on that
needs to be identified. So work continues, but progress is being made.

Note there are 6 backtraces attached to this report also.

updates with fix for 510033

Please try the attached updates image. It is also available at http://dlehman.fedorapeople.org/510033.img .

Here's a link to some help on using updates from the network:


Comment 13 Clyde E. Kunkel 2009-07-21 20:25:12 UTC
Apparently, the updates dialogue screen comes after the network screen.  Can't apply updates via network or update floppy or key since anaconda is failing at the network screen when using askmethod to get to a network.

Is there a way to invoke updates earlier?

Comment 14 David Lehman 2009-07-21 20:37:02 UTC
The link I provided describes a variety of options for specifying an updates image. You only need to put updates=http://dlehman.fedorapeople.org/510033.img on the command line when booting. You can find information about how to specify your network configuration on the command line here:


Comment 15 Andy Lindeberg 2009-07-23 14:11:05 UTC
The fix for this should be present in anaconda 12.4.

Comment 16 Adam Williamson 2009-07-23 18:12:58 UTC
can people please test this as a matter of urgency? Thanks.

Comment 17 Clyde E. Kunkel 2009-07-23 18:21:37 UTC
Can't test since still cannot get a network connection with 12.4.

Comment 18 Adam Miller 2009-07-23 19:33:54 UTC
Works for me with 12.5, I snagged it from koji on a live image I composed (assuming the mirrors just haven't sync'd yet). I was able to get a successful complete install from an "unofficial" rawhide composed livecd.

Comment 19 Clyde E. Kunkel 2009-07-24 00:47:58 UTC
Correcting comment #17:  ...with 12.5 VICE ...with 12.4

Comment 20 Clyde E. Kunkel 2009-07-25 16:15:03 UTC
No joy due to 511907...

Comment 21 Clyde E. Kunkel 2009-07-28 14:27:45 UTC
Still can't verify fixed due to failing anaconda with rawhide image from 20090728. Bz 511907 (and maybe dup 513725).

Comment 22 Clyde E. Kunkel 2009-08-01 18:43:26 UTC
Can't conclusively verify this is fixed since traceback occurs near what appears to be the end of storage prob.  See bz 499854 which was closed due to insufficient data.  However, since this traceback occurred only after storage prob completed without finding LVs and raids, the error has either been resolved now or has morphed into something more insidious.

Please note:  Fedoras 9, 10 and 11 alpha installed on this system.  Have not had a successful install since except by installed fedora 10 and then doing an update install of 11.

Comment 23 Adam Williamson 2009-08-04 23:20:41 UTC
Two reports is good enough for me to mark this one fixed. Can always re-open if appropriate.

Just to report, I no longer see this bug on the PS3 game console.
