Description of problem:
I'm installing Fedora 12 Alpha TC:
from netinst image in virt-manager (using KVM).
When choosing install source the NFS dialog box causes exceptions.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
* virt host - Fedora 11, libvirt-0.6.2-13.fc11.x86_64
so far always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot from F12 Alpha TC netinst
2. Select NFS install and leave everything blank
3. Click OK, OK on error, Cancel
4. Click Modify repository again
See attached logs and video. "Save" button under exception does not work, therefore only some logs are available.

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
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.
This should be fixed in anaconda-12.17.
Confirmed to be fixed.
