3. Re-Started with 'text' option
... As before, but switching virtual consoles during the
filesystem probe module loads to identify filesystems on the
existing hard drives, and to watch for hardware device
... Very curiously, anaconda lost state on the fact taht it
was in a text install and fell over to an X based install --
died with the same traceback as bug 27102

Comment 2 R P Herrold 2001-02-14 20:10:49 UTC
You read correctly --- I was quite surprised ...

The thread is in the full post on testers_list ... but I was moving in and
and out of VC's watching buth the filesystem modules probing, and
for the Adaptec driver insertion ... and it lost state that
it was started wsith "Text" option for the install ...

Since we've resolved the bug that we think causes this, I'm going to resolve
this bug.  Please reopen if this behavior persists in the future.

I could not recreate it with 7.1RC1 -- ... will re-open if it resurfaces --
