Description of problem:
I'm experiencing bug #159026. Used the "linux mediacheck" workaround, also passed the "nofb" parameter, due to a problem getting the SiS video card to display properly.
After selecting packages, and pressing continue, I get:
"Error informing the kernel about modifications to partition /dev/hda2 - Device or resource busy. This means Linux won't know about any changes you made to /dev/hda2 until you reboot - so you should't mount it or use it in any way before rebooting"
With the options to "Ignore" or "Cancel". When choosing "Ignore" I receive the following message:
"An unhandled exception has occured. This is most likely a bug. Please copy the full text of this exception and file a detailed bug report against anaconda at http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/.

And yes, it took me forever to type that all out :)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot to FC4 CD
2. start anaconda with "linux mediacheck nofb"
3. Go through installation, choosing localization, packages, partitioning, etc.
4. Click continue to actually begin installation
5. Click "Ignore" on message box.
Actual Results: I received the error message indicated above.
Expected Results: Not sure, I was hoping the installation would proceed as it always had.
I don't know if this matters at all, but the same procedure (minus the mediacheck option) got FC4 test 3 installed and working. I don't know if thats of any help to you, just thought I'd mention it.
