Bug 1000927, Comment 4 reports the same error message on tty1:
Bug 1000927 - 20 Alpha TC1 i386 install image (netinst or DVD) freezes in the first step
I'm seeing the same with vnc install and one the latest daily snapshot available in our test lab but I read this error is non-fatal. However I can't find anything useful in the logs (or I'm not reading them right).

What do you think by "Install fails"? What happens and in which step/phase does it happen? From the logs it seems it's at some point after the first screen.
Well if I knew what happened I would have told you.
These are automated test jobs I don't monitor them during install, I just saw it aborted, while install (it looks like so). I see couple of GTK errors but they are not critical. The one that looks suspicious is the last one:
(anaconda:864): Gdk-CRITICAL **: gdk_window_move_resize_internal: assertion 'GDK_IS_WINDOW (window)' failed
You have all the logs. I expect you to make sense of them more than I do.
I think there were exceptions happening in the installation (most probably the "YumBase object has no attribute _preconf" one). None of the logs shows anything like "fail for no obvious reason".
Unless you can reproduce this in an "non-unattended" installation and provide some more information about what happened, I'm gonna close this as CANTFIX.
