Booting any 17 Beta TC2 install image (either i386 or x86_64 and either netinst or DVD) and using either the option "text" or "inst.text", immediately after specifying to use text mode instead of VNC, there is a traceback. Proposing as a Beta blocker by the Alpha criterion "The installer must be able to complete an installation using the text, graphical and VNC installation interfaces".

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
whatever is in 17 Beta TC2

How reproducible:
always

Please try booting with:

live.updates=http://wwoods.fedorapeople.org/updates/f17b-tc2-fix-text.img

and let me know if that fixes it.

Comment 4 Andre Robatino 2012-03-20 19:26:22 UTC
It appears to fix it - I'm doing a text install for the 17 Beta TC2 i386 DVD (it's installing packages now). Unfortunately, since it doesn't use the packages on the DVD, it will take a long time, but I'll finish text installs for both i386 and x86_64 to verify that both complete successfully.

Comment 5 Andre Robatino 2012-03-20 21:07:34 UTC
Both DVD text installs successful. I also checked that both netinsts avoid the original traceback.
