Description of problem:Install of FC6T1 from DVD fails

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:Only tried once

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Download DVD iso image
2.Check sha1sum
3.Burn DVD
4.Media check DVD
5.Start install
Actual results:After a short time, I got a message something like

"Error transferring install image to hard drive.  You are probably out
of disk space."

DVD reading continued, and then I got a window that said

"An unhandled exception has occurred.  This is most likely a bug.
Please save a copy of the detailed exception and file a bug report
against anaconda at your distribution provided bug reporting tool."

I saved the details to a floppy and it then rebooted.

I booted into FC5 to see if there were any posts like this on fedora-test-list
yet - none found.  I tried to read the anaconda dump .txt file on the floppy,
and it is unreadable.

Expected results:Installation should proceed normally

Tried install again.  Only change was to not do detailed package selection. 
Install finished fine.  Changing status to NOTABUG.
Comment 2 Chris Kurecka 2006-07-13 19:23:30 EDT
I have had the same problem repeatedly on a x86-64 DVD install also.  The
partition has 9.1GB free, and there's 1.5GB swap.  I get the issue regardless of
whether I do detailed selection or not.  I've tried three times now in slightly
different ways.  I'll try a couple more times tonight, but I'm not sure if
anything will change...
Comment 3 Chris Kurecka 2006-07-13 21:22:16 EDT
By using a 10.0GB partition instead of 9.1GB, the problem went away.  It may or
may not have been a coincidence, but I didn't change anything else.
