Description of problem:
While trying to install Fedora Core 4 on my 12-inch Apple iBook, I get the 
following error just as it is about to begin the installation;

File “/usr/lib/anaconda/gui.py”, line 873, in nextClicked 
File “/usr/lib/anaconda/dispatch.py”, line 174, in gotoNext self.moveStep()
File “/usr/lib/anaconda/dispatch.py”, line 242, in moveStep rc = apply(func, 
File “/usr/lib/anaconda/partitioning.py”, line 54, in 
particionObjectsInitialize partitions.setFromDisk ptype = 
File “/usr/lib/anaconda/partedUtils.py”, line 140, in 
get_partition_file_system_type elif (part.get_flag(parted.PARTITION_BOOT) == 1 
AttributeError: ‘NoneType’ object has no attribute ‘name’

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

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1) Boot the iBook from Disk 1 of the Fedora Core 4 for PPC.
2) Select all defaults for language, time zone, etc.
3) Choose to Remove All Paritions from the machine (since this is a clean 
install) and let Anaconda set up the partitions automatically
4) Before it starts to begin copying 
Actual results:
Anaconda terminates abnormally with the above error messages.

Expected results:
Begin to install the OS

I had the same problem installing FC4 no a G3. The machine had 3 harddrives in 
it, hda, sda, and sdb. Mac OS 9 was installed on it before and it was working 
fine, but when I tried installing FC4 it keept giving me that error message. 
It also gave me the same message when I disconnected the SCSI drives, but when 
reconnected them and disconnected hda it installed fine. I guess it didn't 
like the mix of drives I had. I hope this help some of you in figuring out the 
cause of your problem.
