Description of problem:
Got a new server that couldn't book the fc4 cd's due to a kernel problem, so I thought I'd try fc5test1. Upon inserting the 2nd cd and clicking "ok". I got an unhandled exception. I saved the debug info to disk so that I could post it here.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Began installation of fedora core 5 test 1
2. inserted cd2 when prompted
3. clicked ok.
Actual Results: unhandled exception
Expected Results: continue of installation
Argh... I had attempted to save to disk the debug info, but got an error that it
wasn't able to... So I alt-f2'ed, umounted /tmp/fd0, mkfs.vfat /dev/fd0 and then
attempted to write to disk again... got a success message, but when I just went
to attach the info here, noticed that the floppy was empty. :(
I'm going to attempt a re-install, but this time will not select any additional
Installation using the default package selection worked correctly.
I can only assume that the unhandled exception was do to either my specific
package selections or I hit ok too soon after inserting the 2nd cd.
