From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050922 Fedora/1.0.7-1.1.fc3 Firefox/1.0.7

Description of problem:
I get a repeatable anaconda exception installing from FC-5-Test1-20051120.1-i386-disc2-ftp.iso

Happens after disk partition and after the install image is written to disk.

I selected no package groups (also happened with I think the editors group and system tools).

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install OS from CD

Actual Results:  Anaconda exception

Expected Results:  The joy of Linux

Additional info:

I'll attach an anaconda dump file

Should be disc1, obviously.

Stop trying to deselect things ;) 

More seriously, yeah, the package selection code is verrryy fragile for
deselecting things at present.
Comment 4 James Morris 2005-11-21 19:27:23 EST
Ok, seems to work ok now if I don't deselect anything.
Comment 5 Ville Skyttä 2005-11-27 08:43:19 EST
Wouldn't this be something that should be noted in
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FC5Test1CommonProblems ?

(The wiki page says it'll crash if all packages are unselected, but in my case
it crashed like described in the initial comment here as a result of deselecting
only the printing group and leaving everything else at defaults.)
Comment 6 Chris Lumens 2005-11-29 10:12:28 EST
The wiki page has been updated to reflect this.
