Description Joseph Tate 2003-02-22 19:15:02 UTC
Description of problem:
Installation Failure

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Using stock RH 8.0 isos

How reproducible:
Seems to happen every time.  Warning occurs three times just before the python
error: something like "partition table on /dev/hdg changed but has not been
reread by the kernel."  I hit ignore on each.  Then the failure.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Boot from CD or Boot floppy.
2.  Partition the drives, and choose your packages
3.  Continue and it will fail.
Actual results:
See attached anaconda dump.

Expected results:

Additional info:
HW: Athlon XP 1900+ on Asus A7V333 + RAID motherboard.  2 maxtor 60 GB 7200RPM
drives connected to the two raid channels.  Using the RAID disabled bios from, since Asus doesn't want to
release a bios that disables the onboard raid without disabling IDE as well.

Anaconda Dump

This is the dump that Anaconda made.

Comment 2 Michael Fulbright 2003-02-24 16:51:00 UTC
Matt any ideas why he would be getting the failure to re-read the partition table?

Comment 3 Joseph Tate 2003-02-24 17:20:33 UTC
It's most likely a problem with the PDC 20276 RAID chipset.  I installed beta 3
last night and it worked fine (there are a few warnings on boot, but nothing
that seemed important.)

Comment 4 Jeremy Katz 2003-03-24 17:05:55 UTC
If it works with phoebe, closing as rawhide.  We've changed versions of parted
and the newer parted is nicer about handling partition table changes.
