Description Paul Gallagher 2002-10-07 17:21:37 EDT
Description of Problem:

GUI installation crapped out twice. System messages included one screen 
which read that the ATAPI CD was 'busy' -- looked as if it was continuing 
to poll the device, which wasn't responding. On another system message 
screen (F6?), I found the following:

(anaconda:99): GnomeCanvas_CRITICAL**: file gnome-canvas-path-def.c: Line 
1142 (gnome_canvas_path_def_any_closed): assertion `path!=NULL' failed

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How Reproducible:

Sorry; don't know, aside from running installation.

Steps to Reproduce:

Have you checked your media following the instructions at
Comment 2 Paul Gallagher 2002-10-07 19:07:18 EDT
Yes, I did a mediacheck on Disk 1, and no problems were reported.

As an addendum, the third installation was successful.
Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2002-10-07 22:41:17 EDT
Guessing it was just a sporadic read failure, then.
