AVI file made in VMware that shows the crash.

Attached VMware AVI file shows the installerror. The error happens at the end
(duh). It needs a special decoder for Linux, newest mplayer codecs contains a
DLL for this.
Comment 2 Chris Lumens 2005-11-23 13:18:15 EST
This should be fixed in the next anaconda build.
Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2005-11-23 14:38:41 EST
Also note that you can workaround by giving your VMware guest more RAM -- if you
have over 192 MB of RAM, then you should get the main stage2.
Comment 4 Armijn Hemel 2005-11-23 14:57:16 EST
I gave my VM 196 MB RAM, but I still get the same error, so I'm not sure this
workaround actually works.
