Description of problem:
After creating an LVM based install and selecting the packages to install the
graphical installer crashes.
(I have now successfully installed this system using the text based installer,
however I couldn't do this from scratch as it is not possible to create an LVM
PV with the text based system)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.Partition with Disk Druid (I use LVM)
4.Proceed with install
Expected Results: I would have expected the install to proceed correctly ;)

Dump from installer crash
This is the dump produced by the installer.
Having thought some more it may be that this bug only occurs if I step
backwards through a couple of screens before proceeding with the install.
(Initially I had not given enough disk space to /usr/local so went back and de-
selected a couple of software packages).
Did you choose not to format your root fs?
I believe that the first time this happened was on a cold install and the root
fs was brand new and would be formatted. It did happen after the format. The
installer warned me about a lack of space on /usr so I used the "back" buttons
to go back and de-select some packages.
I then used the "next" buttons to retry the install.
Bingo. Fixed in CVS
Mass-closing lots of old bugs which are in MODIFIED (and thus presumed to be
fixed). If any of these are still a problem, please reopen or file a new bug
against the release which they're occurring in so they can be properly tracked.
