Description of problem:
I get an exception when installing with boot.iso for Fedora 9 in anaconda.
I enter the url to the images and shortly there after I get an exception.

Traceback (most recent call first):
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/lvm.py", line 72, in lvmExec
  raise LvmError, args[0]
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/lvm.py", line 92, in vgscan
  rc = lvmExec("vgscan", "-v")
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/upgrade.py", line 169 in findExistingRoots
  rootparts = anaconda.id.diskset.findExistingRootPartitions(upgradeany = upgradeany)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.insert boot.iso for Fedora 9
2. reboot
3. enter upgrade/install in graphical or text mode
4. enter URL to images
5. error occurs

Note that Fedora 8 installs fine, but not Fedora 9.

This is on an old Dell Dimension L500r with a 1Ghz CPU

It looks like it wants me to type in a URL, filename, userid, and password to
save the traceback somewhere. Is there a way to use this feature to save the
traceback to this bug report?

I was able to load Fedora 9 by loading Fedora 8 and then using something called
PreUpgrade to move to Fedora 9. So if no one else is having a problem maybe we
can close this ticket.
Comment 4 Chris Lumens 2008-06-13 14:35:33 EDT
Glad you were able to use preupgrade to upgrade your system.  I'll close this
bug as INSUFFICIENT_DATA for now since we don't have the exception log to track
down the problem.

Right now the save exception dialog only supports saving to floppy/usb keys and
scp which isn't really helpful for a lot of people.  I'm hoping to have some
advanced capabilities here in the near future to make it more useful for more
people.  Thanks for the bug report.
