sda6 is the existing swap partition on the first HD. The
GUI install has no probem with it.
This defect considered MUST-FIX for Fairfax gold-release.
Did you specify a / partition? From the traceback, it looks almost like the
install didn't have a / partition specified.
I changed my machine configuration. I cannot reproduce it anymore.
The configuration it failed is
1. sda has RedHat 7.1.
2. sdb is empty.
3. I tried to install beta2 to sdc with swap on sda.
In any case, anaconda shouldn't crash.
I can't reproduce it at all here. We've got more sanity checking now so that
cases which could theoretically get you to a condition like you saw should never
happen and if they do, we raise an exception that tells that this is something
which should never happen. Unfortunately, I'd much rather raise an exception in
these cases because there's a chance that the crash dump could reveal something
about how the problem came about, but in your case, it unfortunately does not.
