Anaconda - on the package selection screen, if you click in the
checkbox for "additional Fedora software", the screen turns immediately turns
black and the machine is frozen hard.  This is in VMWare, I redirected serial
output to a file, and used console=ttyS0 console=tty0 on the command line and
didn't see anything :(  This has reproduced every time, 3 times now :).

So you can't switch ttys at this point?  How long did you let it sit? 
Comment 2 Jon Stanley 2008-05-19 12:25:50 EDT
Yeah, can't switch tty's or anything.  I left it sitting that way for several
hours with no change.
Comment 3 Andy Lindeberg 2008-06-06 14:45:32 EDT
The ability to select "Additional Fedora Software" has been removed. Can you try
this with a newer version of Rawhide and let us know if it freezes with any
other selection?
