Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 78626
anaconda crashes on IO errors: should be a little more graceful.
Last modified: 2008-01-17 12:49:41 EST
Description of Problem:
CDs burned and worked on various machines. Stuffed them into a
machine with a more picky drive (DVD drive, not CD drive). Twice
IO errors have crashed anaconda completely. In at least one case,
had it just skipped the package I think there would have been no
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
anaconda from GinGin beta1
How Reproducible: seems reasonably so.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Burn CDs. Put big scratch on one :) (or something)
2. Use a DVD drive instead of a CD drive.
3. Install lots. Wait for anaconda to crash.
Actual Results: Traceback and aborted installation.
Expected Results: Complaint and option to attempt to continue or exit.
Apparently the relevant line from the traceback is
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/pack.py ", line 333
cb UnboundLocalError: local variable
'fn' referenced before assignment.
If this is not enough, I am sorry, but that's what was
dictated at me. I am sure I can do it again though :)
This one's fixed... we had a check slip out of the try accidentally.
