Description IBM Bug Proxy 2013-06-05 06:20:51 UTC
Steps to recreate the problem:
--------------------------------------------------
1) Start installation(ftp based) of Fedora 19 on an LPAR.
2) Select language and hit continue.

Installation fails with following anaconda exception :

anaconda 19.30-1 exception report
Traceback (most recent call first):
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/threading.py", line 939, in join
    raise RuntimeError("cannot join thread before it is started")
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/pyanaconda/threads.py", line 85, in wait
    self.get(name).join()
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/pyanaconda/ui/gui/spokes/storage.py", line 646, in _initialize
    threadMgr.wait(constants.THREAD_CUSTOM_STORAGE_INIT)
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/threading.py", line 764, in run
    self.__target(*self.__args, **self.__kwargs)
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/pyanaconda/threads.py", line 168, in run
    threading.Thread.run(self, *args, **kwargs)
RuntimeError: cannot join thread before it is started

Similar installation on a zVM works without any problems.

------- Comment From ssant@in.ibm.com 2013-06-06 08:03 EDT-------
The failure depends on number of CPUS. I had single CPU configured for the LPAR during installation. If i increase the number of CPUs, I am able to install without any problem.

Same problem can be recreated on a zVM guest as well if number of CPU is one.

Comment 5 Jan Stodola 2013-06-06 14:13:28 UTC
I was able to reproduce in /zVM on a guest with one CPU, but it doesn't happen every time - about 10% of installations fails.

Comment 6 Jan Stodola 2013-06-06 14:42:53 UTC
And now also reproduced on a z/VM guest with 2 CPUs.

Comment 7 Jan Stodola 2013-07-04 11:39:00 UTC
This issue has also been reported against F19/x86_64, see bug 980978.

Martin's got a patch for this.
