Can you provide the complete traceback you received?
Comment 2 David Smith 2006-01-18 12:11:03 EST
That was the complete traceback. What else do you need?
Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2006-01-18 12:14:51 EST
The full traceback includes a lot more logs and is saved as anacdump.txt
Comment 4 David Smith 2006-01-18 12:16:15 EST
Ah, OK. I'll have to try the install again and get that for you.
Comment 5 Christian Iseli 2007-01-19 19:48:11 EST
This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.

Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?

Comment 6 David Smith 2007-01-19 20:02:14 EST
Unable to reproduce after the first time. Since that version is being EOL'd,
closing as NOTABUG.
