Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:30:45 EDT
Upgrading a 7.0 install with anaconda-7.0 crashes the installer right after

that the root has not been mounted.
Could you please attach the traceback you get?

traceback if you still want one,
Yes please add the traceback so I can document this failure better.
