Description Sandro Mathys 2010-08-11 06:18:42 UTC
Description of problem:
If in Fedora 14 Alpha RC2 x86_64 you try to activate additional repositories you're asked to setup a network connection. I tried wlan0 first and failed (probably PEBKAC), then tried eth0 and failed (probably HW issue). So I canceled setting up the network and ended with an error popup which let me exit or debug. That got me the following message:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
- anaconda 14.15
- whatever is on the F14 Alpha RC2 DVD

How reproducible:
Not tried

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go through the installation
2. Select the update repo
3. Try to activate wlan0 and fail (like wrong WPA2 passphrase) and cancel that
4. Try to activate eth0 and fail (like no cable or no ip from dhcp) and cancel that
5. Cancel network activation
Actual results:
Error popup to exit or debug

Expected results:
Updates repo deselected, being able to continue installation

Additional info:
After I chose debug and got that message in the tty, I was able to continue the installation.

cancel -> traceback

Thanks for the report.

The bug (traceback) can occurs when choosing [Cancel] in device selection dialog of stage 2 network enablement (see the screenshot).

Sending patch for review.

the second traceback

After fixing the first traceback, second one (attached) occurs. This one is caused by the fact that we don't disable/remove temporarily added repo after failed network enablement, so next try ([Ok] in Edir Repository dialog) leads to duplicate repos error which manifests itself with the traceback instead of error message because bug #623080.

I am going to send a patch fixing also this issue in scope of this bug to anaconda-devel-list.

No, I'm going to open separate bug #623639 for the issue.

Comment 5 Radek Vykydal 2010-08-12 14:57:03 UTC
This if fixed in master in anaconda-14.15-1, after alpha release, I'll push to f14-branch.

oops, anaconda-15.0-1 that will be

Comment 7 Radek Vykydal 2010-08-24 15:32:33 UTC
This should be fixed in anaconda-14.17-1 (F14 Beta).

Comment 8 Sandro Mathys 2010-10-18 20:08:43 UTC
Can't reproduce this with anaconda 14.19 (i.e. F14 Final TC1.1) anymore.
