Comment 1 Raphael Jacquot 2003-01-14 15:47:00 EST
ok, that's not the cause.
I get  4 warnings however
(anaconda:90): GnomeCanvas-CRITICAL **: file gnome-canvas-path-def.c: line 1142
(gnome_canvas_path_def_any_closed): assertion `path != NULL' failed

now, it seems it's not the canvas, but the X server crashing
Comment 2 Raphael Jacquot 2003-01-14 15:53:05 EST
apparently, installing "everything" seems to cure the heiseibug... wierd
Comment 3 Raphael Jacquot 2003-01-14 16:21:15 EST
I get the "installation ended unexpectedly", again
Comment 4 Michael Fulbright 2003-01-15 12:11:17 EST
The error you are seeing is a warning that occurs even on successful installs.

Have you tested your media?
