I did a clean instalation of F11, but didn't see the error.

I used

1) Use entire drive
2) I modified the /boot to be only 100Mb big
3) I created encrypted ext3 /home with 100MB of space

I ignored the warning about the size (It just a test right..)

F11 base packages installed successfully. Is there anything else I should know about the environment? Old instalations, multiple drives.. anything special at all?

This is a Apple Macbook, which had Fedora 9 x68_64 on it. A fresh new installation of Fedora 11 x86_64 was being attempted with "create custom layout" (to dual boot with MacOS X) and the following layout:

(parted) print
Model: ATA Hitachi HTS54168 (scsi)
Disk /dev/sda: 80.0GB
Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/512B
Partition Table: gpt

Number  Start   End     Size    File system  Name                  Flags

 7      79.0GB  80.0GB  1074MB  linux-swap                              


The partition with the encrypted filesystem is /dev/sda4.

Can you attach the /tmp/anaconda.log and /tmp/program.log files from the broken instalation? Or if you are able to reproduce the crash, use anaconda's save-to-bugzilla or scp feature to give us more information.

And could describe the exact steps you did to reproduce the crash please?

It is hard to debug a failure without information.
