Created an attachment (id=442443)
Attached traceback automatically from anaconda.
Comment 2 Dave Jones 2010-09-01 12:10:46 EDT
I testing the anaconda installer in a kickstart build using the following packages (per Bug # 623237) with SELinux in PERMISSIVE mode.


After the installer has me select a drive it dumps the attached error messages.
Comment 3 Chris Lumens 2010-09-01 14:39:03 EDT
Is NetworkManager even running?  You can check on tty2.

Also is this the F13 GA, or is it a rebuild with the GA anaconda?
Comment 4 Dave Jones 2010-09-01 14:46:58 EDT
"service NetworkManager status" reports it is running and I see the icon on the toolbar.

This is a rebuild via kickstart.

# rpm -qa | grep anaconda

Thank you.
Comment 5 Chris Lumens 2010-09-01 16:09:26 EDT
This looks to be because NM has been updated in F13 and has changed some piece of API such that released anaconda no longer works with it.  Fantastic.  Insert rant about Fedora update policy here.
