Anaconda crash log.
Where did you download your CD image? Have you verified that it is good with
I see you installed with the defaults. Does this include package selection, or
did you make some changes there?
I create my CD by using wget on the following URL:
(Or from one of the mirrors)
And then just use the same .discinfo file from the original FC5t1 download.
This way I can burn a rawhide DVD image even if one package changes (hehe).
Well, the script to do the downloading and creating the DVD image is a little
complex but it seems to work (although the media check will not work this way -
I think this value is stored in the .discinfo file - how would I update that?).
I also wrote a C++ program that will read the index.html or .listing file
generated from wget and delete obsolete files (I should work for you guys ;).
If this is not a good idea, let me know and I'll download the FC5t2 images.
And I'm not making any changes to the package selections during install.
FYI - I've tried anaconda-10.91.7-1.i386.rpm - same problem.
Please test with the FC5t2 images as it's hard for us to verify against
self-created images against rawhide snapshots.
Does an nfs/http installation of rawhide just using the boot.iso work?
Ok, will do.
Yes, it works great. I use the isolinux/isolinux.bin as the boot image.
I'll attach my scripts/source if you wanna see how I do it. Using ftp is better
than http since Apache creates links within listings which makes a mess with wget.

OK, I tried the FC5t2 images and it works. I will close this ticket (NOTABUG).
