Anaconda dump

Similar bug dump on a new Dell 1850 using a kickstart file taken from an
identical new Dell 1850, where everything done manually. (i.e. saved
anaconda-ks.cfg file)

Only things modified from ks.cfg was uncommenting of drive partition lines.

Comment 8 Jeremy Katz 2005-08-08 21:39:14 UTC
Amrish -- this dump isn't at all similar; please file a separate report
preferably with your ks.cfg included (rootpw obsucred)

Andrey -- to get the dump, just press the button to save the traceback to disk
when it occurs and then you can upload by attaching.
