Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 6438
Anaconda in text mode crash after package selection
Last modified: 2015-01-07 18:39:15 EST
After going back and forth with package selection, as the
installer tried to start the package installation I got the
following python error (this is with the updated bootdisk):
File "/usr/bin/anaconda.real", line 225, in ?
intf.run (todo, test = test)
File "/tmp/updates/text.py", line 1009, is run
rc = apply (step(), step())
File "/tmy/updates/text.py", line 572, in __call__
File "/tmp/updates/todo.py", line 1465, in doInstall
happened about 4 times.
Could you please send the reminder of the python message that you are
getting. This is just the top half of it, the window should scroll
down and you will see more of the message. The really important part
is actually at the end as this is a traceback.
I have finally installed RH6.1, and moved around my drives and am
unable to reproduce this bug.
Im getting the same exeption
here it goes:
traceback( innermost last ):
file "/usr/bin/anaconda.real", line 225, in ? intf.run(todo,
file "/tmp/lib/python1.5/site-packages/text.py", line 1000, in runrc=
apply (step(), step)
file "/tmp/lib/python1.5/site-packages/text.py", line 468, in
file "/tmp/lib/python1.5/site-packages/todo.py", line 942, in
file "/tmp/lib/python1.5/site-packages/harddrive.py", line 45, in
file "/tmp/lib/python1.5/site-packages/isys.py", line 8, in unmount

jturner@redhat, this is getting to be really old. This seems to be the
same old bug we've had for a while now with a few different "line
numbers" in the File. See bugs #6278, #6481, #5555, and #5944!!!!
I've had this bug in the instalation of LINUX and some people advised
me to check the RPMS directory for anny files not ending with .RPM
I dis that and foun an log file from my FTP prog. deleted the file
and tryed the install agean, it still did'nt work ( for some other
people this did work !!) Then I compared the files in that dir with
the files on the FTP site and found out that a file called HOWTO-
corean..... something was'nt completly downloaded. I redownloaded
this file and the install worked well !! so check your RPMS dir, it
should be 555.198.893 bytes large, if it is'nt check your RPM files !!

I think this problem is solved with verification that the RPM files in the
source directory are not corrupt or incomplete. Please reopen if the problem
persists with known good RPM files. We will put better error handling into the
I do not know if this is a faux pas here, but I ran into this bug and sketched a
crummy little/big confirmer for DJGPP/DOS, posted at
"http://www.pacificcoast.net/~loth/check.exe" with the source at check.c same
path. Run in RedHat/RPMS with a good ls-lr in the directory and it will list
the mismatches in size.
