Description of problem: During "Starting installation process" when the installer is reading the headers from .rpm files on DVD, the installer process has over 200 filedesriptors open to /dev/null.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
anaconda-12.17 (rawhide of Friday Aug 28)
How reproducible: every time
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot DVD for install, proceed until "Starting installation process"
2. switch to VT2, use "ps ax" to find installer process "python /usr/bin/anaconda"
3. ls -l /proc/<pid_of_installer>/fd
Actual results: about 250 open filedescriptors, with over 200 of them being /dev/null
Expected results: at most a couple dozen open file descriptors
So I don't forget:
This is probably caused by the new tee stuff in execWithRedirect.
This will be fixed in the next version of anaconda (12-26)
