Comment 2 Chris Lumens 2011-09-14 14:01:03 UTC
Did you happen to mount this volume yourself from a shell, or is there some other program running that has it automounted?

Comment 3 Matthieu Pupat 2011-09-14 20:51:35 UTC
I had indeed mounted this volume from a terminal window.

Comment 4 Chris Lumens 2011-09-15 14:16:36 UTC
Please unmount it before starting up anaconda.  We try to make sure to do that ourselves, but if you do mount things at an inopportune moment, it's just going to make a mess of things.  This is one reason why we don't especially care for live installs.
