User-Agent: Mozilla/4.5 [en] (Win95; I)
Description of problem:
Installation fails with Traceback, at the "Installing Packages" Screen
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select Workstation Install
2. Select Partition with Disk Druid
3. Create /boot, / and /tmp partitions
Actual Results: Fails with traceback an package installation screen.
It appears that the installation procedure is creating a "/tmp" directory and using it as scratchpad and that the "/tmp" partition overmounts that directory
causing the "scratchpad" to become inaccessible.
Expected Results: Install packages and complete installation.
Either a warning should be issued, against creating a "/tmp" filesystem, or procedures put in place to allow it's creation without blowing the install.
Traceback (innermost last):
File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/iw/progress_gui.py", line 20, in run
