Comment 1 Jesse Keating 2008-03-31 18:20:40 EDT
I expect you were doing an install in text or serial mode?
Comment 2 Jacek Pliszka 2008-03-31 18:43:58 EDT
YEs, text mode.

Unfortunately there is another bug in GUI install I haven't debugged yet. :(
Comment 3 Jacek Pliszka 2008-03-31 18:50:39 EDT
Bug is actually in line 160 in yuminstall.py in anaconda:

s+= (hdr['summary'] or "")
Comment 4 Jeremy Katz 2008-03-31 18:59:52 EDT
This should be fixed in newer rawhide (say the middle of last week or so).  Are
you still seeing it?

If not, dupe of bug 437993
Comment 5 Jacek Pliszka 2008-04-23 15:40:34 EDT
It is fixed in F9-Preview. 

Sorry I could not check it earlier but I have bittorrent blocked so I had to
wait for something usable with jigdo.
