Hi there...

I've been trying to install F7T4 on VMware workstation 6 (RC) but haven been successful yet. Have tried both i386 and x86_64 and the same thing happens every time. When anaconda has built dependencies and is ready to proceed, anaconda bails, leaving a python backtrace on the screen. I have the option to save the debug info to a floppy, but that doesn't work either.

I just wanted to know if this is a known issue that I've missed. Perhaps a problem with the not-yet-final VMware Workstation 6 or if I need to file a bug.


Everything depends on what the backtrace and error being reported are.
Switch to text console VT2 (ctrl-alt-F2) to get a command window;
then cd to /tmp and cp the file anacdump.txt to a safe location (like
a floppy :-)

There are a couple of open bugs on anaconda at that poin of the install
and you may want to add information to one of them.

My question is if it is the LVM/vgchange activation bug. It's kind of
intermittent depending on the memory configuration of the machines.

It looks like you're right...

Traceback (most recent call first):
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/lvm.py", line 63, in lvmExec
    raise LvmError, args[0]
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/lvm.py", line 109, in vgactivate
    rc = lvmExec(*args)
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/partitions.py", line 1323, in doMetaDeletes
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/packages.py", line 143, in turnOnFilesystems
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/dispatch.py", line 203, in moveStep
    rc = stepFunc(self.anaconda)
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/dispatch.py", line 126, in gotoNext
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/text.py", line 605, in run
  File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 954, in <module>
LvmError: vgchange failed

Local variables in innermost frame:
args: ('vgchange', '-ay', '-v')

Increasing virtual (VMware) memory to 512M (from 384) allows me to continue...

I've added information to bug #236643, i guess that's the one you were thinking of?
