Description Michel Alexandre Salim 2001-10-20 10:22:31 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.75 [en] (Win95; U)

Description of problem:
If the Release Notes are being displayed at the same time that the installer asks for the CD to be changed, the installer crashes. Found 
this out since the first time I tried installing 7.2 Anaconda crashed after the package tetex-fonts, the second time (not displaying Release 
Notes this time) it went fine.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Follow installation steps until Anaconda starts installing packages
2. Display Release notes
3. Wait until installer asks for next CD

Actual Results:  Anaconda crashes, dumps error messages

Expected Results:  Dialog box asking for next CD appearing on top of 'Release Notes' window

Additional info:

Note: This is actually for 7.2 but it's not available yet for selection in Bugzilla (yes, I bought the boxed set). The USB support in installer is 
great guys !

Changing component to 7.2 since it's available now.

I was unable to duplicate this behavior.  I can't explain why it would fail for
you once but then work the next time.  Please reopen this bug if you can
reproduce it reliably.  Thanks for your report.
