Description Ross Kiester 2007-04-01 19:38:09 UTC
Description of problem:

anaconda fails with "unhandled exception occurred"


Traceback (most recent calls first)

File "/usr/lib/anaconda/", line 162 in systemMounted

... ... line 978
... .. line 228 ...

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


How reproducible:

boot: linux
boot: linux text

Steps to Reproduce:
1. attempt overwrite install
Actual results:

failed install

Expected results:

install o.k.

Additional info:

      Machine Name: Power Mac G5
      Machine Model: PowerMac7,3
      CPU Type: PowerPC G5  (3.0)
      Number Of CPUs: 2
      CPU Speed: 2.5 GHz
      L2 Cache (per CPU): 512 KB
      Memory: 1 GB
      Bus Speed: 1.25 GHz
      Boot ROM Version: 5.1.8f7

BTW Fedora Core 6 only partly installs even after using the rescue option. e.g.
terminal doesn't work. I'm looking for a 64-bit toolchain for this machine. I am
willing to be an active tester to get the PowerPC version of Fedora Core running
cleanly. I don't want Fedora to stop supporting PowerPC as Ubuntu has done so
I'll help if there is anything I can do.

Comment 4 Bug Zapper 2008-04-03 23:53:36 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against rawhide during the development of a Fedora release that is no
longer maintained.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flagging all of the open bugs for releases which are no longer
maintained.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 5 Bug Zapper 2008-05-07 01:24:04 UTC
This bug has been in NEEDINFO for more than 30 days since feedback was
first requested. As a result we are closing it.

If you can reproduce this bug in the future against a maintained Fedora
version please feel free to reopen it against that version.
