Description of problem:
Assume the screenshot from http://docs.fedoraproject.org/install-guide/f11/
en-US/html/images/x86-bootloader/x86-bootloader.png with the difference, that
there are simply two entries in the list, Fedora and Windows. If you change
the default (Fedora) to the "Other" (Windows) and then back, this won't work.
If you click to the "Edit" button behind "Fedora" and set there the tick for
default boot target and "OK", Anaconda simply crashes. Note that no LVM setup
was in use, just plain partitioning with crypto partitions and /boot.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Anaconda of Fedora 11 (i386) final via Netinstall.
Everytime, see above.
Changing default in boot loader operating list twice causes anaconda crash
No crash, everything working, switching default operating system how often I
ever want and via both ways (list and edit button).
I recently tested this functionality with anaconda rawhide and it worked for me. Can you pls test with the latest anaconda (12-18 or greater) and confirm this behavior?
If you could try to reproduce it with Fedora 11 as released, you will see
very fast whether it's fixed in Rawhide or not...
Not really, no. We've got a related bug about a crash on the bootloader screen that we've never been able to reproduce on F11 or any rawhide, so it's worth you also testing it out and seeing what the status is.
To add to comment #3. Some bugs are really hard to reproduce because they are related to very specific Hardware configurations or very specific states. Since we don't have your exact hardware nor your configuration, we might not see what you see. This is also the reason your feedback is so important to actually get this solved.
