Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 6402
upgrade fails with Python traceback
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:52 EDT
When upgrading from 6.0 to 6.1, possibly associate with some
kind of mount error, definitely associated with customizing
the list of packages to be installed, I got the following
python traceback from the (very slick) new installer:
Gdk-WARNING **: shmget failed!
Exception in thread Thread-3:
Traceback (innermost last):
File "/usr/lib/python1.5/threading.py", line 376 in
__bootstrap (? handwriting is garbled)
line 16, in run
rc = self.todo.doInstall()
File "/usr/lib/python1.5/site-packages/todo.py", line 1512
prob = "%-15s %d %c\n" % (mount, need, suffix)
TypeError: illegal argument type for builtin operation
BTW - This is with the latest boot image from updates.rdehat.com and a
local CD install.
This may be a duplicate of #5809. Apologies. It takes a while to
learn how to search for existing reports, you really have to submit
one yourself to figure it out.
