Postby eris23 » Mon Apr 02, 2012 23:58

Testing daily amd64 G of 1 April 2012 in Virtualbox 4.1.10 & 4.1.12

Installer exception while formatting virtual drive (set to 12 GB)

Exception message exceeded maximum length for forum, and as attachment, so here's a pastebin:

per the bug report (but line 94 not 98) changing the following works:

/usr/lib/python2.7/whichdb.py
line 94
- if magic == 0x13579ace:
+ if magic in (0x13579ace, 0x13579acd, 0x13579acf):

The daily of 2012-04-11 has the following:

if magic == (0x13579ace, 0x13579acd, 0x13579acf):

That doesn't work -- yields an exception.

On the other hand:

if magic in (0x13579ace, 0x13579acd, 0x13579acf):

still works
