I tried with the latest images that appeared today in rawhide and the problem is
still around anaconda.intf.run(anaconda):

anaconda exception report
Traceback (most recent call first):
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/textw/timezone_text.py", line 68, in __call__
    (default, asUtc, asArc) = anaconda.id.timezone.getTimezoneInfo()
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/text.py", line 674, in run
    rc = win(self.screen, instance)
  File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 1067, in <module>
ValueError: need more than 2 values to unpack

Comment 3 Chris Lumens 2008-02-19 16:25:53 EST
This will be fixed in the NEXT build of anaconda, which has not yet made it into
a tree.  That will be anaconda-
Comment 4 Axel Thimm 2008-02-19 17:02:23 EST
OK, thanks!

BTW is there an even more rawhidish URL for guinea pigs to pick up images to
test like a p.r.c URL? I checked out http://people.redhat.com/clumens/, but
there "was nothing there" :)
Comment 5 Chris Lumens 2008-02-19 17:40:18 EST
There's always the anaconda gitweb page, from which you can extract the absolute
latest version of any file and make your own updates.img or RHupdates:
