Description Oron Peled 2007-06-13 19:05:25 EDT
Description of problem:
During an upgrade from FC6 to F7 after selecting the boot loader
options, there was a python exception in:
  /usr/lib/anaconda/textw/ line 152

After checking this I found the cause: an empty line in my /etc/modprobe.conf.
Removing empty lines before update solved the problem.

How reproducible:
Put empty line(s) into /etc/modprobe.conf before upgrade.

Additional info:
The code in this line is the culprit:
      if l.strip()[0] == "#":
It assumes a non-empty line.
