Description Tom Horsley 2010-09-29 22:55:01 UTC
Description of problem:

Trying to do a hard disk install of released F14 Beta x86_64 DVD iso image,
I get a ways into the install process, formatting the partition and selecting
the grub install location, then I get an error popup that says:

Error Setting Up Repository
(16,'Device or resource busy')
Please provide correct information for installing Fedora

I hit OK (not because it is OK, but because it is my only choice :-).

That takes me to a Edit Repository dialog which only offers HTTP/FTP,
CD/DVD, and NFS as choices (so I have no idea how to tell it the hard
disk repo location).

The grub entry I booted to start the installer looks like:

title Install Fedora 14 Beta x86_64
	root (hd0,6)
	kernel /boot/f14x/vmlinuz repo=hd:LABEL=BACKUP:/iso-images/Fedora-14-Beta-x86_64-DVD/
	initrd /boot/f14x/initrd.img

The directory on the BACKUP disk looks like:

[root@zooty ~]# ls -lR /backup/iso-images/Fedora-14-Beta-x86_64-DVD/
total 3496032
-rw-r--r-- 1 tom users       1616 Sep 28 17:13 Fedora-14-Beta-x86_64-CHECKSUM
-rw-r--r-- 1 tom users 3579226112 Sep 28 20:52 Fedora-14-Beta-x86_64-DVD.iso
drwxr-xr-x 2 tom users       4096 Sep 29 18:07 images/

total 153816
-rw-r--r-- 1 tom users 157347840 Sep 29 18:07 install.img

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

Whatever was shipped on the f14 beta x86_64 DVD.

How reproducible:

Only tried it once, but it sure looks like it would happen again.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.see above
Actual results:
error dialog

Expected results:
installing fedora from hard disk

Additional info:
The LABEL=BACKUP disk is a external USB hard disk. Maybe it failed to wait for
the disk to spin up? I'll try it again with the iso and images directory
on one of my sata disks.

I copied all the logs out of /tmp before rebooting out of the installer. I'll
attach them.

I just tried the same install from my sata disk and got same results, so I guess
USB hard disk has nothing to do with it.

This thread:


Looks like the same problem. I didn't setup the network, so it didn't
fall back on any network repo.

I finally did install via mounting the DVD iso in /var/www/http on another
system and doing a network install from there.
