=Comment: #0=================================================
Jochen Roth <jroth@de.ibm.com> - 2008-02-12 04:31 EDT
We tried to install F9-Alpha on a Cell/B.E. based system. Anaconda crashes when
the VNC session begins. 
The bug only happens when we have two SAS cables from the same storage system
attached to the SAS switch (multipath).
When only one cable is connected everything works as expected.

The following anaconda crash message is displayed (have a look at the
attachments for the full error log)

We just tested it with the latest rawhide version and everything works fine now.
