Thanks very much for your quickly response.
The workaround from #437993 comments 10 can work in text mode, but in my side,
the GUI installation failed in SR platform also. I'm not sure it is the same
mechanism with text installation. So, my question is:
for text installation mode, this bug will be fixed in RC or GA?
for GUI installation, should I file a new bug or you can re-assign it to right
Please file a different report for the GUI problem as that is likely to be an X
bug and we can reassign it to them.
The text problem should be fixed in the preview release.
