Please attach the complete traceback you are receiving to this bug report.  There is simply not enough information here for us to do anything.

Comment 4 Tao Wu 2012-09-07 04:47:12 EDT
This still happens in F18 TC6 i386, especially when the "Click here to create them automatically" option on the "MANUAL PARTITIONING" page was selected.
Comment 5 Chris Lumens 2012-09-07 10:45:59 EDT
The file we need is /tmp/anaconda-tb-*.  That contains information on exactly where in anaconda the crash occurred.

This traceback should be from this bug (I got it when I clicked on 'Click here to create them automatically'. It seems to happen only when the disk is already formated with some partitions on it.

Error handling was added in anaconda-18.8-1 which would prevent this from triggering a crash. Instead, you will now see some information about the error and will then be allowed to continue.
