Alright. I'm no professional Linux guru or a developer. So I don't really know what Information is required. I have reinstalled the system twice with the same result. It's nothing serious. The system just skips the module. I'm subnitting this report because the system asked me so nicely to do so. So if there is any extra information you need I will be happy to give it to you. I have included the special file created containing the report. I hope. The file was named "firstboot-0Xsn3X"
I was unable to include the file but here is what the Error-file contained.
Traceback (most recent call last):

interesting. I'll take a look. This might actually be a couple of things. What language were you using?
Got the same problem on a Fedora 10 installation, no other os involved. First on an update from Fedora 9, then I tried a new installation with same result.
CPU Pentium4 2 GHz, 1 GB ram, ATI Radeon 2400, PATA and SATA HDD (PATA boot), language=swedish.
Ok, thanks for the info, I fixed this a while back I believe but didn't update the ticket (sorry about that)
I think that for future versions of smolt this won't be a problem. Thanks for the report.
