Comment 3 Jan Stodola 2009-08-25 13:00:33 UTC
To reproduce this bug is only need to remove "PPC PReP Boot" partition or modify this partition and set "Encrypt"

Comment 4 Chris Lumens 2009-08-25 14:43:56 UTC
Does updates=http://clumens.fedorapeople.org/519128.img fix it?

Comment 5 Jan Stodola 2009-08-26 08:08:18 UTC
Tested with updates=http://clumens.fedorapeople.org/519218.img and traceback no longer appears when "PPC PReP Boot" partition is removed or set "Encrypt".

Comment 6 Chris Lumens 2009-08-26 15:14:18 UTC
Great, this should be fixed in the next build of anaconda.
