"Device or Resource Busy" in repository setup time when installing from Hard disk
Last modified: 2010-09-18 14:34:01 EDT
Description of problem:
I've tried installing Fedora 14 Beta TC1 from an ext4 partition in an external hard disk (connected by USB). Installer is successfully loaded and I can pass the partitioning section. When installer tries to retrieve installation repo information, it stops with error: Device or Resource Busy. And I should exit the installer (there is another bug in this step too: after the error, the installer asks me if I want to install from network. I press "Cancel" and then, it asks me to select a network interface to setup networking from (thinking that I want to install from network)).
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Copy Fedora 14 Beta TC1 in an ext4 partition in an external hard disk (due to bug #631796 I cannot try installing from my internal hard disk)
2. Select Hard drive install as the installation method in the installer
3. Go through the installation process
When the installer tries to get repository information, it'll show a "Device or Resource Busy" error
Installation should go without the error
This sounds like bug 627789. Was the error "Error setting up repository - 16, Device busy"?
It was 16, but I think it was "Device or Resource Busy". Also after hitting OK, I got a screen which asked me to select a new installation method (NFS, HTTP, CD/DVD).
Also (which is a different and not important bug as you are exiting the installer anyway) when I select "Cancel" in this dialog, it still asks me to select a network interface!
BTW, it is probably caused by the same problem anyway.
