Description James Laska 2010-02-16 15:48:33 UTC
Created attachment 394571 [details]

Description of problem:

Cmdline install stops and prompts at cleardisksel step despite having "cleardisk --all --initlabel" in the kickstart.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
 * anaconda-13.26 (plus http://jlaska.fedorapeople.org/updates-f13-alpha-tc2.img)

How reproducible:
 * Everytime

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create the following kickstart file 

    # Basic kickstart file for RATS
    url --url=http://...
    lang en_US.UTF-8
    keyboard us
    network --device eth0 --mtu=1500 --bootproto dhcp
    # "autoqa"
    rootpw  password
    timezone --utc America/New_York
    # partitioning - nuke and start fresh
    clearpart --all --initlabel
    bootloader --location=mbr

# packages should be a superset of critpath

2. Attempt install using kickstart file and "cmdline" output, e.g. boot with "ks=http://server/path/to/ks.cfg cmdline"
Actual results:

Install stops and prompts user.

15:34:04,426 WARNING anaconda: step complete does not exist
15:34:04,426 WARNING anaconda: step complete does not exist
15:34:04,427 INFO anaconda: moving (1) to step setuptime
15:34:04,427 DEBUG anaconda: setuptime is a direct step
10:34:05,007 INFO anaconda: leaving (1) step setuptime
10:34:05,009 INFO anaconda: moving (1) to step cleardiskssel

Expected results:

If the kickstart contains 'clearpart --all --initlabel', should the install stop and prompt?

Additional info:

* See attached log files
* Adding for consideration as an F13Alpha candidate per cmdline test case priority discussion on anaconda-devel-list (see https://www.redhat.com/archives/anaconda-devel-list/2010-February/msg00059.html)
