Description Wayne Smith 2004-05-21 18:01:47 UTC

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.6)

Description of problem:
Anaconda is getting confused about how to deal with deleting and
re-creating partions during a new installation over a prior Fedora

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora Core 2 (test 3)
2. Start installing Fedora Core 2
3. Set installation type to "Custom"
4. Set partitoning method to "Automatic"
5. Set partition deletion to "All existing Linux"

Actual Results:  Anaconda crashes and allows me to write out a txt file.

Expected Results:  Anaconda should have continued on with the rest of
the installation

Additional info:

All Fedora Core Test {1,2,3} worked fine.

This is a Dell Latitude Laptop D840.

This is the file that is written out to the floppy just immediately
after the anaconda installation crashes.
