Attached traceback automatically from anaconda.

Comment 2 David Lehman 2010-05-10 15:43:08 UTC
The traceback shown is from a second-attempt live install. That is to say the first attempt resulted in a traceback and then the user seems to have just restarted the install. This is why I love the livecd.

Here's the original traceback:

21:28:20,660 CRITICAL anaconda: anaconda 13.40 exception report

Comment 3 Bernhard Schuster 2010-05-10 17:35:33 UTC
What I did:

I tried to creat a encrypted custom setup. Anaconda crashed ( I don't have the traceback of that crash). Then I tried it again, and it crashed again with this traceback (as seen in my initial "post")

Comment 4 David Lehman 2010-05-24 18:50:03 UTC
The original failure is the same one reported in bug 582757.

The secondary failure is that we do not handle well the case of already-set-up devices when doing the initial storage scan. That is what will be addressed in this bug report.

Comment 5 David Lehman 2011-02-24 14:45:02 UTC
The version of anaconda in Fedora 15 will be much better at deactivating whatever active devices it finds when starting a live install.
