Description Jefferson Smith 2002-09-08 02:42:14 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper: 
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/3.0.0-10; Linux) 
Description of problem: 
Installation halted with an unhandled exception when I enabled checking for 
bad blocks on the partitions to install. 
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 
How reproducible: 
Didn't try  
(it installed without enabling badblock check) 
Steps to Reproduce: 
1. Wnen editing new partitions with diskdruid, choose to format and also check 
for bad blocks. 
2. It will stop later, when starting actual install. 
Actual Results:  It stoped later, when starting actual install. It wrote 
"anacdump.txt" to a floppy. 
Expected Results:  Install correctly

The installer did not handle the detection of bad blocks correctly.
