Comment 2 zimon 2009-08-16 19:37:37 UTC
Removing network file systems from /etc/fstab got around this bug (?).
I had this kind of lines there, which after commented out let anaconda go beyond that point:
#toad:jlo                /mnt/toad_jlo            cifs    noauto,user=jlo 0 0

I have had those network filesystems manually added to fstab and working OK, until now.

After these were commented out, upgrade from F-10 system to F-11 succeeded. (although failing the GUI-mode as reported in the bug https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=218181)

Comment 3 Joel Andres Granados 2009-08-19 11:00:59 UTC
This should be fixed in current anaconda version 12.16,  And, its probably in 12.15 too.

Comment 4 Bug Zapper 2009-11-16 11:23:31 UTC
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 12 development cycle.
Changing version to '12'.
