Description Harald Hoyer 2009-10-07 17:06:56 UTC
Description of problem:

Install from LiveCD and you end up with


If you eject a CD, one of the rules of 70-anaconda.rules kicks in and calls blkid, which should not be done (see /lib/udev/rules.d/60-persistent-storage.rules). blkid causes the CD tray to close immediately.

Solutions in order of preference:

1) push all rules upstream to udev or to the tools they belong to and obsolete 70-anaconda.rules completely

2) remove 70-anaconda.rules after installation (might be a symlink)

3) enclose the rules with:
ENV{ANACONDA}!=".*", GOTO="anaconda_end"
... rules....
and set ANACONDA from anaconda with:
# udevadm control --env=ANACONDA=1

4) remove anaconda completely after livecd installation

We'll do #3 for now while we very slowly continue to do #1.

Would be possible to fix the bug in F-12 anaconda and release an update addressing it?

This embarrassing bug has been polluting Fedora since F-9 and I am still closing duplicates...

Comment 5 Chris Lumens 2010-02-01 15:51:35 UTC
No, we don't really release updates for anaconda as that requires making entirely new media spins which requires additional QA work, rel-eng work, etc.  However, Fedora Unity does some of this if you want to send this bug to them.
