Description of problem:

to prompt for the encryption key, the install crashed after
entering the key.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
DVD install from:
Happened twice, workd around by booting live CD and dd'ing
zeros to the encrypted partition.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. try to install to a system with an encrypted partition
install will traceback and crash.
should not fail
Please attach the complete traceback to this bug report.
Cannot, it was on a graphic console, my laptop screen, no way to capture it. And it was newline challenged, a real mess. It is easily reproducible.
I should note it was on a t60 and was an x86_64 install.
You can't take a picture and attach that? Or switch to tty2 and grab /tmp/anaconda-tb-*? What's easily reproducible for you is not necessarily easily reproducible for anyone else, as we don't have your exact hardware and preexisting partitioning configuration available.
Well it's my laptop and I need it. If you have tried it and it works, let me know and I will see what I can do.
closing as a dup...
