Description of problem:
This error was encountered after selecting locales. The next stage would
be selecting the time zone (hence the 'map view').
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
NOTE: Only occurs in graphical installation mode. Text mode works fine.
1. Boot from installation CD. Press ENTER for default graphical install.
2. Proceed through configuration.
3. Time zone selection crashes with an error report.
Actual Results: Installer fails.
Expected Results: Should have produced a nice world maps with pretty dots
on it so that you can select your time zone.
Basic error output:
Traceback (innermost last):

Complete debug dump from Anaconda.
Weird, but I see from your other bug report that the md5sums match. This is
very strange. The installer is looking for a file on the cd, but it can't find
it. This is almost always indicative of a bad cd, but there must be another
problem in your case since the md5sums match. I must admit that I'm stumped.
If you can try starting the graphical installer again (you don't have to do an
install, just boot up into the installer) and press <Ctrl><Alt><F2>. Then type
"ls -l /usr/share/anaconda/pixmaps/map480.png" What does the output of that
command look like? Is the file even there?

Is there more to the traceback? Usually the values of variables is included.
All I have is the dump file that Anaconda produced (attached earlier).
Here's an idea...it might not make a difference, but it's worth a try. It looks
like the kernel is having trouble reading from the cdrom drive. It looks like
the cdrom is on the primary IDE controller as the slave device. Try switching
the cdrom drive to being the master device on the secondary IDE controller.
Does that help?
If that doesn't work, try booting the installer with 'linux ide=nodma'. Does
