Description of problem:
Installer starts up normally, I select "Upgrade Existing 
Installation" and the partition it's on (It's a Fedora Core 1 
install) and click next.  Then it crashes with the attached 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start install from disc
2. Select "Upgrade existing installation"
3. Click next

Actual Results:  Crash with attached traceback

Expected Results:  Normal installation

Additional info:

   My system configuration:
IDE Controller: Onboard VIA VT823x
hda,hdd = Identical Seagate 200gb 7200RPM drives

hda1 = 5g Linux (ext3)
hda2 = 40g Linux (ext3)
hda3 = 155g Linux raid autodetect
hdd1 = 200g Linux raid autodetect

   Raid configuration:

We don't support linear RAID right now...

Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2004-06-15 22:34:56 UTC
We don't crash anymore with unsupported RAID devices.  They get
ignored and won't get used (since we can't use them during the install
process), but this seems preferable to flaming death :)

That's a lot better.  The big raid partition is just movie data, not 
important for install.  Thanks much!
