'HtmlUtil Critical' errors occur on first reboot after RHEL5.5 installation

Updated -

Issue:

  • At the last screen of the installation, click "Reboot" and multiple anaconda "HtmlUtil - Critical" errors occur.

Environment:

  • RHEL5.5, RHEL5.6, RHEL5.7, RHEL5.8

Diagnostic Steps:

  • If encountered, the errors will resemble the following:
(anaconda: 1505): HtmlUtil -CRITCAL **: html_stream_cancel: assertion 'stream->cancel_func !NULL' failed
(anaconda: 1505): HtmlUtil -CRITCAL **: html_stream_cancel: assertion 'stream->cancel_func !NULL' failed

Root Cause:

  • Anaconda is failing to set a cancel callback on an HTMLStream, and then trying to cancel the stream. The resulting error messages are harmless.

Resolution:

  • Red Hat has determined that this error message is harmless and may be ignored.
  • Please call your Red Hat support representative if further details are required.
