Description harry.heinisch 2002-01-23 21:14:18 UTC
Description of Problem: when anaconda crashes and offers to save a debug dump
of the problem to floppy, it appears to format the floppy filesystem, but
never seems to save any data

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): alpha-7.2-beta1

How Reproducible: whenever anaconda crashes

Steps to Reproduce:
1. in the anaconda crash screen, select "Save" to attempt dumping to floppy
2. observe the floppy contents after the "Save"

Actual Results: no data saved

Expected Results: data about the anaconda crash saved on floppy

Humm, well it would appear that none of fat/msdos or vfat are available as
modules in the ramdisk.img.... so, understandably it won't be able to save

Anaconda bug in mkinages.alpha (fixed for next build)
