FC5 and FC6 are EOL. Is still problem in FC-7 and above?
Comment 3 Robert Allerstorfer 2008-03-26 10:53:12 EDT
Yes, nothing changed since I submitted this bug one year ago.
Comment 4 Roman Rakus 2008-03-27 08:30:47 EDT
Yes. I have take a deeper look at the problem and probably it's anaconda's
cause. Adding anaconda-maint-list@redhat.com to CC.
