Comment 1 Tao Wu 2011-08-17 08:40:16 UTC
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot the installer using any available means (netinst.iso, pxeboot images or DVD.iso) 
2. Direct anaconda to use the package repo from a NFS server where your DVD iso images are stored by repo= boot command. For example:
3. Proceed with installation 

Actual results:
anaconda crashed after partitioning

Expected results:
anaconda install successfully

When I used http://akozumpl.fedorapeople.org/bz_dispatcher.img as an update, this problem didn't show up.

Comment 4 Chris Lumens 2011-08-17 13:14:50 UTC
Please attach /tmp/anaconda-tb-* to this bug report.  I don't know why that's not getting attached automatically by abrt.  Thanks.

Hi Chris,

It still happens on anaconda 16.16, and I have upload the anaconda-tb-irzUih file, please have a look. Thanks!

Comment 7 Tim Flink 2011-09-02 05:07:06 UTC
Proposing as blocker for Fedora 16 final because it interferes with the "NFSISO install variation" test case [1] which is part of the final milestone of the install test plan.

what the hell? makes the update system think this has been fixed in 16.17?

Tao, can you please retest with my comment 8? I think you shouldn't hit the traceback now though you still won't be able to install because your image architecture doesn't match that of your system.
