Description Daniel Geiger 2006-08-08 11:08:28 EDT
Description of problem:
I was doing an FTP install off
ftp://mirror.eas.muohio.edu/fedora/linux/core/test/5.91/i386/os, and twice
anaconda while in the "preparing the installation" screen told me it had an
unhandled error/exception, I think it was.  I was using a Compaq DeskPro EN, and
the CD disk one.

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

How reproducible:
see below

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot off the CD 1
2. linux askmethod
3. ftp
4. DCHP, IPv4, IPv6 all selected
5. remove all linux partitions and create /, /boot, and /home partitions
6. manually set hostname first time, by DHCP second time.
7. select all three extra tasks (first time); second time, none selected
8. start installation
Actual results:
Anaconda crashed with error message, "unhandled exception"

Expected results:
add package libgnomeprintui22-2.12.1-5.i386.rpm and continue; add package
libmng-1.0.9-5.1.i386.rpm and continue

Additional info:
As I look through the log files generated (attached), I see other error messages
- I don't know if those are related to the visible problem.

Missing variable initialization in urlinstall.py.  Fixed in CVS, will be in the
next anaconda package build.
