Description James Laska 2010-02-16 14:06:36 UTC
Description of problem:

Live installs fail to start due to a missing /tmp/updates directory.  I can easily work around this, by creating the directory.  My question ...

* Should anaconda not fail if the directory is missing? 
* Should livecd tools be creating this directory?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

 * anaconda-13.26

How reproducible:

 * everytime

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot a fedora live image that has anaconda-13.26 installed
2. At a command-prompt, type 'liveinst'
Actual results:

[liveuser@localhost ~]$ liveinst 
umount: /media/*: not found
  0 logical volume(s) in volume group "linux" now active
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/sbin/anaconda", line 775, in <module>
  File "/usr/sbin/anaconda", line 118, in setupPythonUpdates
    for pkg in os.listdir("/tmp/updates"):
OSError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/tmp/updates'

Expected results:

No failures

Myself, oxf13 and a few others on IRC don't see this in an anaconda 13.31 build, closing.
