Description of problem:
After the filesystems were formatted (I think), anaconda died with a traceback
which I will be attaching to this bug report.

I'm not quite sure how I triggered it. I may have somehow clicked on the "Next"
button while it was on the screen but before it could be disabled (if that's
even possible), or something equally freakish and unlikely.

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

How reproducible:
Couldn't Reproduce

Steps to Reproduce:
Honestly, I wish I could remember... :/

Try doing weird stuff with the mouse (like pointing at the Next button, clicking
it, then pressing it down again, moving the pointer away from the Next button,
and releasing the button before the next screen can fully appear.

I don't fully remember what I did to cause this bug, but it might have been
something weird like that.

Actual Results:  The traceback which I will be attaching.

Expected Results:  Installation to proceed as normal (the button was dimmed on
the screen, so I'd expect it to have no effect in that state...)

Additional info:

The discs passed the test. I tried twice to reproduce this and was unable to.

Jeremy I seem to recall you'd seen this issue before.

Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2003-01-27 23:07:58 UTC
I think I know what was causing this and it should be fixed in Phoebe2.  I've
also added some additional debugging in case I didn't fix it so that hopefully I
can reproduce it.
