Text cmdline kickstart doesn't handle missing packages
Last modified: 2015-01-09 15:04:22 EST
Using LMC to create a disk image/iso uses kickstart, cmdline and dirinstall. If the kickstart has packages that can't be found it falls into an error loop. meh tries to deal with it, but gets stuck.
If you disable meh it reveals that pyanaconda/ui/tui/hubs/progress.py refresh is getting called repeatedly. Here's what I've tracked down so far:
yumpayload hits a missing package.
It calls its _handleMissing method
That calls errorHandler.cb with the noSuchPackage error
The cb calls _noSuchPackageHandler
which calls showYesNoQuestion
That checks for kickstart install and just returns False.
but then the end of errorHandler.cb sees the self.ui is Text
self.ui.run() is called and this ends up calling progress.py refresh() again.
This might not be a problem, except that refresh() is starting the install thread so it throws an error because the thread is already running. Resulting in another error, another call to self.ui.run, refresh() etc.
I'm not yet sure how to fix this, just documenting what I have found so far.
*** Bug 969434 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
This message is a notice that Fedora 19 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 19. It is
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained. Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now this bug will
be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '19'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 19 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Anaconda just exits now instead of making cmdline mode freak out.
