Description Petr Schindler 2012-09-04 04:58:03 EDT
Description of problem:
Liveinst is segfaulted when I run it from Live-KDE. In attachment 'liveinst.log' you can find what I get in terminal. This happens only on bare metal.

Sometimes it starts anaconda which takes 100% of cpu and nothing more happens.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run live-kde
2. log in as liveuser
3. try to run installation (from terminal run /usr/bin/liveinst)
Actual results:

Expected results:
anaconda starts

Additional info:
I propose this bug as an alpha blocker. The related criterion is:
'The installer must boot (if appropriate) and run on all primary architectures, with all system firmware types that are common on those architectures, from default live image, DVD, and boot.iso install media when written to an optical disc and when written to a USB stick with at least one of the officially supported methods'

Comment 2 Lukáš Tinkl 2012-09-04 06:00:04 EDT
[11:47] <ltinkl> jreznik: /usr/lib64/gtk-3.0/3.0.0/theming-engines/liboxygen-gtk.so
[11:47] <ltinkl> and then (anaconda:3048): Gtk-WARNING **: Overriding tab label for notebook
[11:47] <ltinkl> my humble guess

Disabling oxygen-gtk would be an easy& fast fix
Comment 3 Kamil Páral 2012-09-04 08:58:16 EDT
Please note this only happens if you boot from USB (created from ISO using dd). If you boot from DVD, anaconda starts OK. Tested both architectures on several different machines.

Petr, in the original report, also used USB to boot.
Comment 4 Jaroslav Reznik 2012-09-04 09:16:45 EDT
On bare metal, booted with USB - it takes a long time to start and it's dual boot system and nfsresize eats 100% cpu all the time (so probably another bug? but similar symptoms, 100% cpu, maybe it overrides the original one)...

(In reply to comment #4)
Unless you receive similar traceback to attachment 609608 [details], it's a different bug.
Comment 6 Kevin Kofler 2012-09-04 11:26:17 EDT
So this crashes inside libparted, I don't think KDE or oxygen-gtk have anything to do with this.
Comment 7 Brian Lane 2012-09-04 12:45:33 EDT
I can reproduce this with 'sudo parted /dev/sdf p' and selecting Ignore when it complains about the block size mismatch. Tested with nightly F18 iso and TC3 netboot.iso
