Description of problem:
Trying to install Fedora Core 3 from CD, I get through the package
selection phase and it starts to format the partitions to prepare for
package install and then I get 'Exception Occurred'. Basically there
are three options; debug, save to floppy, and ok. I saved the
information to floppy, but the information is to large to post here.
It looks like it is having an issue partitioning the drives. I've
never had this problem before.
It would be nice that if it has this type of problem that it doesn't
just crash and force a restart. This is too much like Windows and a
blue screen. A meaningful error and an opportunity to go back and
correct the error would be more appropriate.
Anyway, I've attempted Fedora Core 3 installs on five completely
different systems and every one of them had a problem. I think some
fine tuning is in order on the installer in this release.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot off of CD.
2. Make package selections and allow the installation to begin.
3. Ends with 'Exception Occurred'
Actual Results: Installation crashed and had to reboot.
Expected Results: Installation should complete.
Can you provide the exception you received here?
