Description Doug Chapman 2006-08-29 15:03:40 EDT
Description of problem:
This was seen on my HP Integrity rx4640 server while doing a kickstart install
of rawhide.  Network boot, NFS install, serial console.

Very soon after stage2 starts it dies with:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 900, in ?
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/kickstart.py", line 794, in setInstallData

you may safely reboot your system

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

How reproducible:
This particular system hits this every time.  I have other systems that die on
other unrelated issues (kernel panics on the other systems).

I am no longer seeing this as of the 0830 build.
