traceback upgrading from F8 to F9beta
Last modified: 2008-04-01 18:39:01 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:
anaconda 126.96.36.199 exception report

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