Abridged Anaconda Traceback
Description of problem:
Installing FC11-pre i386 DVD, an Exception dialog appears in the "Installing Bootloader" phase.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Same result in two tries.
My system has a single drive, with three partitions, as set up by fedora 10 installer:
sda1 / (ext3)
sda3 /home (ext3, LUKS encrypted)
When I ran the installer, I instructed it to format sda1 and sda2 and keep sda3 as /home.
I tried booting into rescue mode and running grub-install, but it says:
"/dev/mapper/luks-c8474611-b9f2-4dbc-93de-de22c5baad05 does not have any corresponding BIOS drive."
The attached traceback is transcribed in abridged form because I was unable to save or send it. When clicking the save button, Anaconda stalls at the searching for drives screen and does not recover. Hopefully I've included enough information to get started, at least.
The version you're testing is pretty old now. Can you give a later test release a try and see if you're still experiencing this problem?
I ran the live cd and updated anaconda to 184.108.40.206-1, and was able to complete an installation.
Great, thanks for testing.
