Description Peter Ashford 2003-03-03 17:42:47 UTC
Description of problem:

After the partitions are formatted, the installer crashes.  The anaconda status was saved, and is at the end of this message.

The workaround is to NOT mirror the ROOT file-system.

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

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Install system as shown in the anaconda logs

Actual results:

System installation crashes.

Expected results:

Successful installation.

Additional info:

I suspect that this problem is related to the on-board AIC-7902 chip on the SuperMicro X5DP8-G2 motherboard.

Saved status from Anaconda:

Traceback (innermost last):
  File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 633, in ?, dispatch, configFileData)
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/", line 427, in run
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/", line 144, in gotoNext
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/", line 209, in moveStep
    rc = apply(func, self.bindArgs(args))
