Service Pack Roll v5.0.3 for Rocks v5.0 is Released
The Service Pack Roll v5.0.3 for i386 and x86_64 architectures is released.
This roll includes the following new fix:
- Base Roll – Fix for Dell Virtual Floppy. On Dell machines that have Dell Remote Access Controllers (DRACs), the Dell Virtual Floppy would be recognized by anaconda as a hard disk. This would cause an exception that looks like:
Traceback (most recent call first):
File “/tmp/product/autopart.py”, line 1230, in doAutoPartition
for f in initial_free[drive]:
File “/usr/lib/anaconda/dispatch.py”, line 201, in moveStep
rc = stepFunc(self.anaconda)
File “/usr/lib/anaconda/dispatch.py”, line 124, in gotoNext
File “/usr/lib/anaconda/dispatch.py”, line 223, in currentStep
File “/usr/lib/anaconda/iw/release_notes.py”, line 86, in resize
(step, args) = self.anaconda.dispatch.currentStep()
File “/usr/lib/anaconda/iw/release_notes.py”, line 51, in __init__
File “/tmp/product/gui.py”, line 1148, in __init__
self.rnv = ReleaseNotesViewer(self.anaconda)
File “/tmp/product/gui.py”, line 977, in run
self.icw = InstallControlWindow (self.anaconda)
File “/usr/bin/anaconda”, line 982, in ?
The fix is to filter out hard disks that don’t have ‘media present’ (which is how the Dell Virtual Floppy behaves).
Additionally, this Service Pack Roll includes all the fixes from the previous Service Pack Rolls.
This Service Pack Roll can be installed over an existing Service Pack Roll, that is, there is no need to remove a previous Service Pack Roll before installing this one.
Detailed descriptions of all the fixes can be found here.
This roll can be installed onto a running frontend.
ISO images for the Service Pack Roll can be found on the Downloads page.
