Insert FC4 CD 2. Start installation 3. Get as far as choosing disk partitioning method 4. Error occurs Actual results: Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/lib/anaconda/gui.py", line 873, in nextClicked self.dispatch.gotoNext() File "/usr/lib/anaconda/dispatch.py", line 174, in gotoNext self.moveStep() File "/usr/lib/anaconda/dispatch.py", line 242 moveStep rc = apply(func, self.bindArgs(args)) File "/usr/lib/anaconda/partitions.py", line 108, in setFromDisk ptype = partedUtils.get_partition_file_system_type(part) File "/usr/lib/anaconda/partedUtils.py", line 140, in get_partition_file_system_type elif (part.get_flag(parted.PARTITION_BOOT) == 1 and AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute name Expected results: Progress and formatting of hard drive Additional info:
Comment 1 Luis 2005-06-28 11:01:26 UTC
I have a very similar traceback when I try to install FC4 on a G5 imac. It happens either with automatic partition and with diskdruid. The cd has correct checksum and I am rtying an ftp installation. Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/lib/anaconda/gui.py", line 873, in nextClicked self.dispatch.gotoNext() File "/usr/lib/anaconda/dispatch.py", line 174, in gotoNext self.moveStep() File "/usr/lib/anaconda/dispatch.py", line 242, in moveStep rc = apply(func, self.bindArgs(args)) File "/usr/lib/anaconda/partitioninig.py", line 54, in partitionObjectsInitialize partitions.setFromDisk(diskset) File "/usr/lib/anaconda/partitions.py", line 108, in setFromDisk ptype = partedUtils.get_partition_file_system_type(part) File "/usr/lib/anaconda/partedUtils.py", line 140, in get_partition_file_system_type elif(part.get_flag(parted.PARTITION_BOOT)) == 1 and AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'name'
Comment 2 Tom Gutnick 2005-07-04 14:23:08 UTC
I got something similar, installing on a Gateway Pentium II system. Same traceback, although prior to that I had gotten this warning: error: Error: Error informing the kernel about modifications to partition /dev/ hda2 - Device or resource busy. This means Linux won't know about any changes you made to /dev/hda2 until you reboot - so you shouldn't mount it or use it in any way before rebooting. The system had been previously configured with a Windows 98 partition and a Linux (FC3) partition; this time, I was attempting to do a clean install, telling Linux to use the entire disk. A subsequent attempt at installation (albeit installing as "workstation" package selection instead of "custom") worked properly.
Comment 3 Paul Nasrat 2005-07-08 18:01:58 UTC
On the G5 imac, please can you switch to tty2 at the welcome to anaconda screen and paste the output of the following to this bug report. Can you also not any error messages on tty3-5 when you get the exception: parted /dev/hda print

Comment 5 Ross Powell 2005-07-14 02:50:16 UTC
Trying again, have additional details. Did a complete "zero" of the iBook hard drive, after which Disk Utility it set up a Mac OS (HFS+) partition. Now immediately after the keyboard language is selected, an error box appears saying "The partition's data region doesn't occupy the entire partition", and then "Attempt to read sectors 16-18 outside of partition on /dev/hda". The error repeats just after it prompts for automatic vs. manual partitioning. Not trying to overload you on information, just wanted to make sure you knew everything I knew.
Comment 6 Paul Nasrat 2005-07-14 12:32:24 UTC
Could you attach your partition table as shown by pdisk in Mac OS X.
Comment 7 Ross Powell 2005-07-14 15:42:38 UTC
Don't know what "pdisk" is. Please advise.
Comment 8 Luis 2005-07-14 18:45:50 UTC
I attach the partition table given by pdisk as requested in #6. I must say that this is the partition table I built with diskduid, the posts requesting this information appeared later. Sorry. Diskdruid worked ok for me but of course I had to reinstall MacOsX. At least this is a partition map which works either for fedora and MacosX. The HD is a Sata of 149.05 GB output of pdisk /dev/disk0 -dump #: type name length base ( size ) 1: Apple_partition_map Apple 63 @ 1 2: Apple_Bootstrap untitled 2048 @ 64 ( 1M) 3: Apple_Unix_SVR2 untitled 143360000 @ 2112 ( 68.4G) 4: Apple_Unix_SVR2 swap 8192000 @ 14336112 ( 3.9G) 5: Apple_HFX untitled 161027696 @ 151554112 ( 76.8G)

Comment 14 Jason 2005-09-02 21:07:10 UTC
I get the same exception occurred as Comment 1 with an intel P4 D850GB motherboard (latest bios) doing an ftp and/or http install from a iis 6 server. This worked using fc3.
Comment 16 Nathan Cuperus 2005-10-31 02:02:01 UTC
Another "Exception Occured" error... I get all the way through installation, after all the packages are installed and one final progress bar comes up saying something about making final changes (I haven't gotten a chance to read it all, it crashes almost as soon as the progress bar starts). Error message: Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/lib/anaconda/gui.py", line 1137, in handleRenderCallback self.currentWindow.renderCallback() File "/usr/lib/anaconda/iw/progress_gui.py", line 244, in renderCallback self.initf.icw.nextClicked() File "/usr/lib/anaconda/gui.py", line 873, in nextClicked self.dispatch.gotoNext() File "/usr/lib/anaconda.py", line 174, in gotoNext self.moveStep() File "/usr/lib/anaconda/dispatch.py", line 242, in moveStep rc = apply(func, self.bindArgs(args)) File "/usr/lib/anaconda/iutil.py", line 53, in execWithRedirect raise RuntimeError, command + " can not be run" RuntimeError: /usr/sbin/kudzu can not be run

Comment 18 Tim 2005-11-23 20:56:01 UTC
I get the same error on an IBM 6579-M6U PC with a P4 2.4 GHz and 512 MB of RAM. The system did have 2000 Server installed the first time I got the error: "Error informing the kernel about modifications to partition /dev/hda2 - Device or resource busy. This means Linux won't know about any changes you made to /dev/hda2 until you reboot - so you shouldn't mount it or use it in any way before rebooting." I clicked Ignore and then got the "Exception Occured" Wiped all the partions and started new this time letting the installer do an automatic partion instead and this time just got the "Exception Occured" I have a dump and will attach to this bug.

Created attachment 121414 [details] Anaconda_Crash_Dump_Bug_161877 This is the Anaconda Crash Dump of my system state at the time of the "Exception Occured."
Comment 20 Tim 2005-11-23 21:18:09 UTC
4th time is the charm. Tried one more time and still got the same error. Tried a 4th time and got the formating filesystem progress bar instead of the Exception. Looking through the other posts to this bug Tom Gutnick got it to work after three tries on a system that formerly had Windows. Is it possible there is something about formatting/repartitioning a disk from Windows to ext3 that takes anaconda a few tries before it can overcome it? I have installed over Windows with Fedora Core 2 in the past with no problems. BTW, I was installing over Windows 2000 Server Standard Edition SP4 with a 4 GB C: and approx 22 GB D: both NTFS.
