Description Will Woods 2008-04-01 17:55:16 EDT
After upgrading an x86_64 system from F8 using the F9Beta DVD, when anaconda
tried to configure the bootloader, it threw an exception and died.

The traceback is:

The system needed a fsck on reboot but seems to actually be booting F9beta OK.
So this doesn't *break* installs, at least.
