*** Bug 491910 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Still present with 220.127.116.11 today.
My bug#491910 was found during a RAID kickstart install.
Orion and Ronald: Are you seeing this during a kickstart installation, or a manual install on using dmraid hardware?
kickstart, but so far only on a machine with 2 existing non-linux partitions that are preserved. Installs on pure linux machines on which all partitions are first removed by kickstart are fine.
Orion, thanks for the feedback. The anaconda team will be focusing on improving the kickstart experience post-beta. The focus for beta is around manual installations.
I've added this issue to the known issues list for F11 Beta (https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Fedora_11_Beta_release_notes#Anaconda_installer_issues).
- manual install !
- no RAID
00:12.0 SATA controller: ATI Technologies Inc SB600 Non-Raid-5 SATA (prog-if 01 [AHCI 1.0])
is this dmraid hardware ?

Been following this bug for some time and think I have a hack for it. Would appreciate people testing with one of the following update images:
The following updates are the same solution but less hackish. Would appreciate a test for each comment image, if you have time :).
but no luck.
installer stops with a popup message "Filesystem error detected, cannot continue"
with an OK "button"
attached all file under /tmp.
add. blkid and fdisk -l /dev/sd?
hint: sda2 is Solaris ZFS

Running anaconda 18.104.22.168, the Fedora system installer - please wait...

This was tested by performing a raid0 kickstart install of rawhide while booting with updates=http://jgranado.fedorapeople.org/storage/testing/01-04-2009-2010-x86_64.img
I hit this (see bug 491493) when attempting to format a partition as xfs in the custom partitioning screen, in the x86 F11 Beta installer.

This means your hitting another bug before this one. thx for testing!
The images I created for comment 12 and 13 were a little off. These new images should correct the problem and hopefully take care of the bug :)

Couple of points from Bug 493498.
- no RAID

- Boot.iso (rawhide-20090331)

Different than the other one posted.

I got a very similar error today when I tried to install Fedora 11 Beta.
The disk layout is as follows:
Disk /dev/sda: 60801 cylinders, 255 heads, 63 sectors/track
Units = cylinders of 8225280 bytes, blocks of 1024 bytes, counting from 0

/dev/sda7 7076+ 9687 2612- 20980862+ 83 Linux
There is plenty of room in the extended partition. I used the graphical installer, no RAID, nothing unusual. I just pressed the "New" button and tried to create a new root (/) partition, format as ext4, sized 20000MB, and immediately got the traceback when I pressed the "Ok" button (or whatever its name is).
This is addressed in current anaconda.

Getting different traceback today (bug #495076)- no idea if I got farther or not.
I have a similar experience as Orion in comment#36. I'm not seeing this issue anymore, but am now seeing bug#495077.
No more partitioning tracebacks for me with 22.214.171.124.
