Attached traceback automatically from anaconda.
Comment 2 Roger Mach 2009-06-10 13:39:00 EDT
I was mistaken when I originally described this error as being seen during a uefi installation.  This was a legacy mode installation from DVD to a disk with a GPT label, which is probably an unusual combination but as far as I know should be supported.
Comment 3 Roger Mach 2009-06-11 19:23:51 EDT
This problem has now also occurred during a uefi installation to a disk with a GPT disklabel.
Comment 4 seth vidal 2009-09-03 11:33:51 EDT
I have no idea at all. Can you make this happen if you use rawhide/f12alpha?

anaconda execption report from fedora 12 alpha installation

As requested, I tried installing Fedora 12 Alpha on the same machine where I saw the original issue.  I did not get the same error but did hit a different anaconda failure as detailed in the attached exception report.
Comment 6 seth vidal 2009-09-04 10:18:07 EDT
reassigning this error over to anaconda.
Comment 7 Chris Lumens 2009-09-04 10:30:58 EDT
Since the original issue appears to be fixed in F12 Alpha, I'm going to close this bug out.  We have plenty of reports of the second issue described in comment #5, which I believe are assigned to python-pyblock.
