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