Description William Tate 2008-06-20 11:42:12 EDT
Description of problem:
This problem only occurs on an AMD Geode LX-800 processor.
Anaconda throws python stack trace on checking dependencies.  This is
immediately after choosing software packages to install.

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

How reproducible:
Attempt to install REHL 5.1 on an AMD Geode LX-800 processor (I have a Demo
board and a PC104-Plus system here, both fail).

  NOTE: I was able to reproduce this on centOS

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Using AMD Geode LX-800 processor, attempt installation.
2.  Select default options for everything.
3.  Enjoy stack trace when checking package dependencies.
Actual results:
Python stack trace occurs when the installation begins checking dependencies, 

Expected results:
Dependency check should go swimmingly and installation should continue to copy
the files to the hard disk I am installing to.
