the stacktrace - python affected

Comment 2 Brian Lane 2011-08-26 16:56:12 UTC
That traceback is actually from kdump, do you have more details from grubby?

Comment 3 melchiaros 2011-08-27 09:30:50 UTC
My bad!

I mainly use openSUSE and be a bit without orientation on fedora.

So, you right. It´s a bug of kdump and not bug-buddy.

Please reassign it to one of yours which maintain on kdump.

Comment 4 Américo Wang 2011-11-11 08:20:24 UTC
This BZ should belong to system-config-kdump, not kexec-tools.

Comment 5 Roman Rakus 2011-11-11 12:19:05 UTC
Thanks for the report.
Are you trying it on installed system or on live media? What is the architecture?

Comment 6 melchiaros 2011-11-11 12:30:39 UTC

I´ve used KVM on fedora 15 to virtualise fedora16 alpha on x86_64 (CPU AMD T1100 when you want it exactly).

Comment 7 Roman Rakus 2011-11-11 13:08:45 UTC
Can you please run as root in terminal  `/usr/share/system-config-kdump/system-config-kdump-backend.py' and as a user in other terminal `system-config-kdump -d' and post here outputs?

Comment 8 melchiaros 2011-11-11 13:20:27 UTC
The original vm is gone(see the date of the ticket!), so direct performing of your suggestion is not possible.

I´am low in time; do you think that getting the settings in a fedora16 final (fresh istall) would bring any benefit? -> Would take some time to do that, for me.

Comment 9 Roman Rakus 2011-11-17 22:51:56 UTC
I've tried it now on fresh install of Fedora 16 and with all up2date I didn't hit this bug.

Comment 10 Roman Rakus 2011-11-28 11:02:12 UTC
Now I hit the bug. Looks like it depends if you use grub or grub2.

Comment 11 Nicolas Chauvet (kwizart) 2012-01-02 20:25:19 UTC
I've hit this bug.
I'm using grubby --default-kernel as RPM %post section which return void.
As this case is not handled by my script, it fails. (xorg-x11-drv-nvidia FYI).

The installation was done with the update repository enabled from x86_64 DVD default installation (as of 20111230).

Comment 12 Nicolas Chauvet (kwizart) 2012-01-02 20:27:12 UTC
Sorry, I've miss-read the report, not my bug

Comment 13 Nicolas Chauvet (kwizart) 2012-01-02 20:29:46 UTC
(found it as #736188 sorry for the noise)
