Description Soren Juelsgaard 2006-01-27 20:43:48 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8) Gecko/20051111 Firefox/1.5

Description of problem:

The installer crashes in the post install with the following message:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/", line 1137, in handleRenderCallback
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/iw/", line 244, in renderCallback
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/", line 873, in nextClicked
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/", line 174, in gotoNext
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/", line 242, in moveStep
    rc = apply(func, self.bindArgs(args))
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/", line 1204, in doPostInstall
    stdout = devnull)
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/", line 53, in execWithRedirect
    raise RuntimeError, command + " can not be run"
RuntimeError: /usr/sbin/kudzu can not be run

Please see attached anaconda dump.

I have tried with two different hard drives - one SATA and one EIDE.
I have tried minimum installs and "everything" installs.
I have tried automatic Druid partitioning of disks, I have tried manual Druid, I have tried fdisk partitioning.

I am not sure if this bug is related to bug #170003

I find it curious that the text install has all the error messages from rpmdb ("rpmdb: PANIC: fatal region error detected: run recovery").

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start CD install
2a. pick graphic install
3a. watch in tears how the post-install crashes
2b. pick text-mode install
3b. installer crashes with "rpmdb: PANIC: fatal region error detected: run recovery" spewing all over the screen while installing packages.

My system is a P4 1.7GHz system, and I believe that it is a copy of an older FC3
