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.
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.
