Description Markus Walther 2006-01-25 14:26:03 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.2; SV1; .NET CLR 1.1.4322)

Description of problem:
I do a network installation (with pxe boot, installation over nfs and kickstart). When the server boots the first time (after the installation) the following bug is reported:


Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/firstboot/", line 502, in loadModules
    vbox, pix, title = module.launch()
  File "/usr/src/build/430918-x86_64/install/usr/share/firstboot/modules/", line 177, in launch
    return FirstbootGuiWindow.launch(self)
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.3/site-packages/rhpl/", line 106, in launch
    internalVBox.pack_start(self.myVbox, gtk.TRUE)
AttributeError: BootWindow instance has no attribute 'myVbox'


Then I can finish the installation and all works fine, so far i can see!

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. pxe boot
2. network install over nfs
3. use kickstart for configuration
4. after installation and the first reboot the bug above is reported

I just updated BZ 158567.  Not sure whether that bug or this is being used to
track new information related to this problem.

Comment 8 Chris Lumens 2006-09-20 20:01:00 UTC
This code is actually in rhpl in RHEL-4.

Comment 9 Chris Lumens 2006-10-06 17:25:31 UTC
Though that errata has already gone out so it's too late to fix this there, but
it's simple enough to deal with in firstboot.
