Hello Good Folks,
I have been trying to install ClearLinux (build v7280) and it has been
failing. It proceeds till the automatic partition screen, starts the
install but fails. This is true even from manual install.
I have been trying to install ClearLinux on a machine which was earlier
used as a ESXi host. And I believe I was using a single concatenated
datastore volume (sda+sdb).
When I saw the debug log it stated that failed to mount the
VMFS_volume_member. This is inspite of the fact that I don't have any
partitions on the two disks (sda & sdb).
After the failed installation, the installer brings me to a window where I
can '< View log >', '< Shell >', '< Reboot >' or
'< Shutdown >'
Actual error from the debug mentioned below:
425-Debug: Error mount: unknown filesystem type
425-Error: Couldn't install ClearLinux
425-Info: Cleaning up
425-Debug: Failed: Exception(' mount /dev/sda1
Now if I enter the shell, and enter an command 'ip' without any parameters
or arguments, the installer crashes and throws an python assert. At this
point soft reboot does not work and I have to hard reset.
My assumption is that on the shell if a user keys in a command which has
populated the STDERR handle, then the shell within the installer throws an
assert and crashes.
