Description Matthew Galgoci 2002-03-13 19:39:46 EST
I tried to install the hampton re0312.0 release today on a testbox and was 
able to make anaconda die horribly.

It was an nfs install on top of a raid1 filesystem with swap on raid1 as well.

Here is the stack trace. I have the entire dump file if it is needed.

Traceback (innermost last):
  File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 627, in ?
