Comment 2 Chris Lumens 2009-08-21 15:43:18 UTC
Do you have a filesystem on /dev/sda without any partitions involved?

Comment 3 g_remlin 2009-08-21 20:17:40 UTC
No, but I think this may be related to BUG# 518719, which anaconda is failing to handle (anaconda fails to re-initialise the partition table).


Comment 4 Chris Lumens 2009-08-24 14:47:26 UTC
518719 is a kernel bug, not an anaconda bug.  Since sda (which is the drive involved in this bug report) is attached to a device whose kernel driver is having problems, I'm thinking that the kernel problem is the underlying problem here.  Once that's fixed up, anaconda should be fine.  If not, we can reopen this bug and continue to investigate.

Comment 5 g_remlin 2009-08-25 20:34:47 UTC
Agreed 518719 is a kernel bug, but anaconda should handle the situation of an invalid partition table gracefully whatever the reason it occurred. If anaconda cannot find any media to install to it should say so and NOT take a dive!
