Description Jost Langner 2004-12-18 05:24:44 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; de-DE; rv:1.7.3)
Gecko/20041027 Firefox/1.0RC1

Description of problem:
Situation: upgrade from fc2 to fc3 by CD. First CD inserted. Media was
successfully checked, means: doesn't have any errors on it.

anaconda starts upgrade until the step "find installed packages" (or
so), then displays an error message (see below) and exits.

(If helpful, I can provide the complete anaconda dump file
"anacdump.txt", but this is more than 1MB, so for this step I send
only the first lines of error messages but not the dump.)

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. insert first fc3 CD
2. reboot system
3. follow the installation procedure until error occurs.

Additional info:
