Description of problem:
Anaconda fails to install the fedora system in text mode.

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

How reproducible:
Everytime. I reproduced it with a Fedora 10 

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora in text mode. I use a system with two harddisks and two network cards.
2. After giving a root password in the root password screen installation stops with an exeption. Example is in the screenshot "Screen1" which I attached.
3. If I choose the "Save" option in the exeptions screen, the system failes with the screen autput as in "Screen2".
Actual results:
Unable to install the system. 

Expected results:
I expect anaconda to install the system.

Additional info:
- I am able to install in graphic mode.
- After the installation has failed and I reboot, the harddisks have not been modified by the installation process.
- A kickstart installation fails with the same output on the screen as in "Screen2".

This should be fixed in anaconda-
Comment 3 A.J. Werkman 2009-03-16 15:53:45 EDT
Tried anaconda- today. In textmode I do not see the exeption error anymore, but in the partitioning screen there are no harddisk to be selected although in tty2 fdisk -l shows the harddisks. After that anaconda complains not to be able to make a root filesystem.

A kickstart installation fails with the above mentioned exception.
