Description Norihiko Tomiyama 2007-03-31 14:16:59 UTC
Fedora 7 test3 installer hangs up with Traceback.

I've attached tracefile.

Anaconda Traceback file

Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2007-04-02 17:18:20 UTC
The root cause here is that the kernel driver for mptfusion currently doesn't
work with the lsilogic adapter exported by vmware.

I've made it so that anaconda won't traceback in this case, though.

Bulk message: Fedora 7 test bugs should be filed against "devel", not against
test1/2/3. This isn't obvious, I know. Moving this report so it isn't lost.

Comment 6 Dave Jones 2007-12-10 20:58:08 UTC
Was this still a problem with F8 ?

Comment 7 Bug Zapper 2008-04-03 23:51:41 UTC
Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported
against rawhide during the development of a Fedora release that is no
longer maintained. In order to refocus our efforts as a project we are
flagging all of the open bugs for releases which are no longer
maintained. If this bug remains in NEEDINFO thirty (30) days from now,
we will automatically close it.

If you can reproduce this bug in a maintained Fedora version (7, 8, or
rawhide), please change this bug to the respective version and change
the status to ASSIGNED. (If you're unable to change the bug's version
or status, add a comment to the bug and someone will change it for you.)

Thanks for your help, and we apologize again that we haven't handled
these issues to this point.

The process we're following is outlined here:

We will be following the process here: to ensure this
doesn't happen again.

Comment 8 Bug Zapper 2008-05-07 01:22:51 UTC

first requested. As a result we are closing it.
