Description facility 2002-07-24 22:32:06 UTC
When formatting with bad block check, installer crashes with debug info near the
very end of the format of the last partition.  First 2 non-swap partitions
format fine.


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Redhat 7.3 Anaconda.  Whatever was on the CDROM.  I don't know
where the version number is listed.

How Reproducible: Every time

1.Buy Wal-Mart computer. :)
2.Partitiion into 32M/512M/4G/25G
3.Format all partitions (ext3) checking for bad blocks

Actual Results:

Installer crashes with debug info near the very end of the format of the last
partition.  First 2 non-swap partitions format fine.
End of traceback looks like this.

  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/fsset.py", line 210, in badblocksDevice
    l = string.split(num, '/')
TypeError: argument 1: expected read-only character buffer, int found


Expected Results:

All partitions format with bad block check; and installer continues.

Bad blocks were detected and the installer crashed handling the exception.
You'll have to consider if you want to use the drive considering it failed the test.
