I'm not an anaconda expert, but looking at the attached dump, it looks like you
might have run out of space on the disk to which you were installing.  I'm not
sure why it wasn't reported, but I would guess you were *really* close to the
edge of how much space you had, and in writing some temporary stuff, maybe
anaconda simply lost the bet.  Again, just my "pseudo-lay" perspective -- I
don't know exactly what happens at this point in anaconda.  If you tried again,
selecting fewer packages, and it succeeds, I suppose that might be evidentiary.

Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2006-01-28 05:29:23 UTC
Yeah, it does look like you ran out of disk space -- how big was the partition
you were installing into?
