Comment 1 Erinn Looney-Triggs 2011-08-24 09:25:36 EDT
This one was lousy, happened during the formatting of partitions, formatted /boot/ then blew up, left me with a non functioning install of fedora. Looks to me like it doesn't like luks, but I am no expert.
Comment 2 Chris Lumens 2011-08-24 10:37:19 EDT
Can you please attach /tmp/anaconda-tb-* to this bug report as well?  I don't know why libreport didn't do that for us, but it's pretty annoying.
Comment 3 Erinn Looney-Triggs 2011-08-25 11:02:11 EDT
Well the third time through the install seems to be the charm as the issue did not occur again. Sorry I can't get you better debug info, I too thought it was all attached here.
Comment 4 David Lehman 2011-09-15 16:42:15 EDT
In the absence of critical information I am going on a hunch and closing this as a dupe of bug 737916.
