Description of problem:
Anaconda seems to very occasionally flake out with an unhandled exception whilst
installing from the retail CDs/DVD. This problem occurs rarely, but seems mostly
limited to when I use a custom installation. Unhandled exception ALWAYS occurs
immediately once the installation actually starts. Occurs from both the CDs and
the DVD. Oh, and it's really difficult to reproduce. Don't I just make life fun? ;-)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Preform a custom installation - This seems to be the only way to reproduce
this bug, and it seems like it only happens when a custom individual package
list is produced. I have no idea which package is doing this.
Actual Results: Can't reproduce this problem at will. I have no idea what
Expected Results: The installation should have continued. The point of
occurence is immediately after clicking Install, after package selection and
dependency verification. Yay.
I will be trying this install on different systems, to see if I can get it to
reproduce on any other hardware, when I get the time. I am running a Dell
Dimension 4300, so the hardware is all new and stuff. Don't really have much
else to offer....
Will attach dump file soon....
