Created attachment 89161 [details]
The anaconda dump

Seems it's a signal handler for a mouse click which is not handled 
possibly by the rule widget indicating the progresses on the post-install
scripts ...

Comment 2 Daniel Veillard 2003-01-08 20:01:17 UTC
I reran the same installation steps, same configuration, same
parameters, but refrained from doing any keybard or mouse
interraction and watching closely the post-install step and
all went fine. So I assume I pressed the wrong button at
the wrong spot and at the wrong time. This is not easilly repeatable


Comment 3 Michael Fulbright 2003-01-08 20:55:25 UTC
Could you please retry with beta 3 (Phoebe)?

Comment 4 Daniel Veillard 2003-01-08 23:44:32 UTC
It was with 8.0.92 beta 3 (Phoebe)

Comment 5 Jeremy Katz 2003-01-10 06:00:22 UTC
Arjan -- this smells like it might be a kernel problem.  

We have /proc/bus/usb initially mounted in the install system environment.  It
gets unmounted and we then remount usbdevfs as /proc/bus/usb inside the chroot.
 Run kudzu inside the chroot.  Then, when we go to unmount it later, we get EINVAL.

I've gone ahead and put some insulation in anaconda to stop this from being a
problem for us, so if you don't care, feel free to close, but thought it might
potentially be interesting.

Actually, I think I fixed it somewhere 2.4.20-2.21, see bug 81091.
I am not duping this bug because it tracks installer that Jeremy mentioned.

Comment 7 Jeremy Katz 2003-02-18 01:07:41 UTC
Looks dupable to me (like I said, I added a workaround to anaconda also :)
