I've also tried to install Fedora 9 Beta from the DVD to the hard disk, but it
presents the following problems:

1) It won't use the GUI, and selects text only (Fedora 9 Alpha worked with the GUI).
2) It then fails after installing the first 20-23 packages (usually just after
tzdata is installed) with Anaconda errors similar to the ones listed here, but
with different lines at fault.

The install then fails and stops with an error message.

Tried this three times with the same failures.

i686 set-up, AMD 1400, which had successfully installed Fedora 8 previously
installed on the disk.

Hope this helps.

I've just committed a fix that should hopefully resolve this problem.  Can you
try again with rawhide from tomorrow or later or the snapshot at the end of the

Thank you for this advice.  I can't see the DVD image now, so will there be an
updated DVD image coming up shortly to download from the web-site/mirrors
 Please could you let me know.

Thank you,
