Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 74431
Install exits abnormally
Last modified: 2005-10-31 17:00:50 EST
Description of problem:
Install Exited Abnormally. CD PASSES Mediacheck.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Actual Results: (anaconda:89):Gnome-Canvas-CRITICAL**:file gnome-canvas-path-
def.c:line 1142 (gnome-canvas-path-def-any-closed):assertion 'path !=NULL'
Install Exited Abnormally appears then
machine enters halt
Expected Results: Successful Installation
Chosing not install gnome seems to have worked around the problem. I wanted to
submit this to the Null section but did not see it in the list. So here it is
*** Bug 74390 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
This message is just a warning and is harmless.
At what point during the install process did it abort?
*** Bug 74430 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Somewhere in the package installation.
Moving on to 8.0 release.
This usually indicated a problem with the install source containing the packages
you omitted, in this case the GNOME packages.
I have the same problem. This is for Red Hat 8.0 installation. I was able to reproduce it 5 times. It
happens after all the packages are installed and before the boot disk creation screen (I guess
that's the next step looking at the installation guide) comes up. I have changed my selection of
packages hoping to avoid the problem but with no luck.
The actual error is:
GnomeCanvas-CRITICAL **: file gnome-canvas-path-def.c: line 1142
(gnome_canvas_path_def_any_closed): assertion 'path != NULL' failed
# repeat the above
message several times
install exited abnormally
Oh, I forgot to mention that I've checked the CD media and they are fine. In addition, I was able to
install 7.2 and 7.3 previously without problem.
Can somebody reopen the bug? Do I have to create a new bug instead?
