The traceback in the anaconda.png is about python-meh, and that's been fixed.  The original traceback is:

anaconda 12.7 exception report
Traceback (most recent call first):
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/iw/task_gui.py", line 178, in createDialog
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/iw/task_gui.py", line 495, in _editRepo
TypeError: GtkEntry.set_text() argument 1 must be string, not None
Comment 4 James Laska 2009-08-07 15:52:13 EDT
Reviewed during F-12-Alpha Blocker bug meeting.  Modifying yum repositories during installation will be discouraged for the Alpha in favor of performing any yum repo operations in the post-installation environment.

Ideally, one can perform a NFS installation when booting the boot.iso or DVD with the boot argument: "askmethod"  However, that appears to be inoperable for F-12-Alpha (see bug#515450).  To perform a NFS installation, it is recommended that you install from a PXE server or using the media-less instructions (see http://docs.fedoraproject.org/install-guide/f11/en-US/html/ap-medialess-install.html).

Adjusting the title of this defect to match the failure case.
Comment 5 Chris Lumens 2009-08-19 10:31:03 EDT
This should be fixed in anaconda-12.17.
Comment 6 Kamil Páral 2009-09-07 08:52:09 EDT
Confirmed to be fixed.
