Exception and crash.
Component to become unchecked.
I'm not reproducing this here -- can you attach the traceback that you received?
I'm reproducing this on the release version. how can I get the traceback during
Would be glad of that information as well, from the exception I can't go
anywhere but a hard reboot.
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Anaconda/BugReporting describes how to get the
exception report. I am also unable to reproduce this issue. Does it happen
with only a certain package, or is it different ones every time?
I tried it with a couple packages when installing and had it happen every time,
so I'm assuming it's not specific to certain packages.
Okay, some information about reproducing this:
Go to the package selection by chosing "customize now". Select any group
offering further customizazion, click on "Optional packages", click select or
deselect any package and press the cursor key to the right.
Your cursor should now be on the description field of the package signified by
having a dashed box around the selection.
Now press space and voila, you've got a crash.
Crashdump is attached.
