Created attachment 358480 [details]
Attached traceback automatically from anaconda.

Comment 2 Frank Murphy 2009-08-24 16:45:52 UTC
home was pre-setup in /dev/sda3

install was to use free space before home
for default partitions.

had just inputted to use Irish keyboard, when exception happened.

Comment 3 Frank Murphy 2009-08-25 07:08:38 UTC

Portions of this may be relevant?
As I also used gparted to setup the free-space.
Palimpsest Disk Utility, havng refused to allow permission.

Comment 4 Frank Murphy 2009-08-25 09:34:07 UTC
Solved (Hopefully)

When booting from the liveMedia.
As a reflex, I always entered luks p\w when asked.

If this is skipped, just press enter util boot continues.

Partitioning (gparted\Palimpsest) and then install work fine.
Maybe is may be the case for other similar events?

Comment 5 Andy Lindeberg 2009-08-25 13:53:07 UTC
That's not a solution, merely a workaround. Feel free to use it to avoid this problem, of course, but the underlying cause for the traceback should still be fixed.
