RFE: Save backtrace to alternate locations
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:40:30 EDT
Description of Problem:
During an attempt to a "minimal" installation which was done by deselecting
_all_ packages save few (like filesystem, bash, grub, ...) and later
accepting "install all packages to resolve dependencies" around 400 MB
was still picked up for an installation. After installing nearly everything
save few megabytes (hard to tell exactly how many due to subseqent events)
anaconda poped out a bit Python trace window in the middle of the screen
killing mouse in the process. Some buttons in an attempt to save to a floppy
were reachable from a keyboard but with the final "Confirm" I was not so
lucky and anaconda immediately rebooted the whole setup.
It would be really good to have these backtraces in some file on a ramdisk
instead of a "user-friendly" dialog. Then I normally have multiple places
to save in a sane way instead of blowing up a diskette which often may
turn out to have errors (this happens more and more often).
Any ideas Matt?
Are you seeing the same behavior with Beta 2?
deferred to next gtk2 based installer
Tracebacks will now be written to /tmp/anacdump.txt.
Mass-closing lots of old bugs which are in MODIFIED (and thus presumed to be
fixed). If any of these are still a problem, please reopen or file a new bug
against the release which they're occurring in so they can be properly tracked.
