Why would halt be better?
Comment 2 andrewem 2002-02-15 14:28:15 EST
If I have disc 1 in the drive, the machine starts to load it and repeat the
install.  This actually makes sense.

If I have disc 2 or 3 in the drive, I boot into an incomplete install.

When anaconda crashes with an error, it politely halts (it seems to think the
install completed).

Ok I understand now.  That is something we'll consider for future releases.
Comment 4 Michael Fulbright 2002-03-26 12:33:43 EST
Deferring to future release.
