Description of problem:
After saving the exception data to a floppy the user should be permitted to
save it again to a second floppy.
Floppy disks are very unreliable and it's not uncommon to have read errors.
It's very annoying to have to go through the entire install procedure to
repeat a crash because a floppy disk error prevented reading the data. It
would be much nicer if after the first floppy failed I could click on a button
labeled "make another copy".
Also it would be nice to support USB mass storage devices. Floppy disks are
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Cause anaconda to crash and save to floppy.
USB storage device support would be nice, I agree. We have recently added
support to use scp to send the traceback to a remote machine. You might find
that useful. It could still be more forgiving of mistakes, but I'll work on it.
Saving to a remote host via scp is now working well. In the future, we'll
investigate using a USB device for saving instead of/in addition to floppies.
