I couldn't find this in bugzilla already, so please give a holler if this has
been filed. I'm attaching the anacdump.txt file (obtained using the shiny *new*
remote scp support).
Steps to reproduce:
1) start up into the graphical stage2
2) click release notes
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/gui.py", line 1063, in releaseNotesButtonClicked
Looking at the code in gui.py this almost looks intentional ... perhaps this is
just a TODO item?
1053 # when user clicks on release notes button we queue a request to start
1054 # the release notes viewer. The idle handler we setup will try to
1055 # start the viewer when it is called. If we happen to be in an RPM
1056 # callback during package installation and are in the chroot we cannot
1057 # run the viewer. The idle handler will just keep trying to start
1058 # viewer until it gets called outside the chroot environment.
1060 # Yes this is icky.
1062 def releaseNotesButtonClicked (self, widget):
1063 raise SystemError
1064 # see if release notes are running

Yeah, it was intentional. I was reworking the GUI exception dialog and needed a
sure-fire way to generate an exception for testing, so this immediately came to
mind. I got distracted by kickstart and never finished this up. It shouldn't
have been committed at all.
