Description Tom Horsley 2008-10-02 20:16:47 EDT
Description of problem:

Installing from hard disk as described in bug 465184, I got the repo
definition correct and got almost all the way through the install,
but it gets the attached exception right after it says it is doing
postinatll configuration.

I couldn't save the exception report the first time, so I tried again
with the asknetwork option, and was able to scp the file to another
system on the 2nd try. For some reason even with floppy disk and usb
stick plugged in, it claimed there were no local storage devices
to save the report on on the 1st attempt.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Whatever is on the fedora 10 beta dvd image (x86_64).

How reproducible:
It did it twice so far, I doubt I'll try again.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. try to hard disk install
2. watch exception popup after postinstall config
Actual results:

Expected results:
installed system

I also had a crash during installation, but much earlier.  I haven't been able to save the crash details, but it happened around where it asks if you're sure you want to install a test release.  Then I get something that says:
"An unhandled exception has occurred.  This is most likely a bug..."  When I try to save a copy of the crash details, it doesn't seem to let me.  Incidentally, the mouse isn't working and only about 1/4 of the screen is being used by the graphical installer at the time it crashes.  Not sure if that is related.

I tried to install f10beta on a third computer and this time got the same signature as in this bug (3 computers, 3 different installer bugs!).  Anyway,
this attachment is probably redundant, but it can't hurt.

Despite this error, the installation worked for me if I booted with from my f9 grub pointed to the new kernel/initrd.
