Description Jon Masters 2009-05-23 02:17:02 EDT
Description of problem:

Booting a LPAR configured with 16GB of disk and 512MB RAM, which had previously contained a Fedora 9 system, then selecting to re-install the OS from scratch resulted in broken dialogs, around 100 packages being installed, and an unbootable post-install system. An install using "vnc" seems ok so far.

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

F11 Preview netinst CD ISO

How reproducible:

Not entirely sure. I deleted the LPAR and re-created it and haven't tried reproducing this yet. Waiting to hear if this is a known bug before I throw more time at a reproducer.

Nope, I haven't heard of this.  Can you attach all the usual log files to this bug?

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.
