Description Brian "netdragon" Bober 2003-03-09 00:55:55 EST
Description of problem:
I got an exception during installation. I had no floppy, and therefore no way to
save it.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
8.0

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Get an exception
2. Try to save the information without a floppy
    
Actual results:
No dice

Expected results:
Ability to save it to the hard drive (if you are doing a fresh install) or to a
part of one of the partitions otherwise.
Comment 1 Michael Fulbright 2003-05-05 15:58:09 EDT
I have made some changes to write the traceback to /tmp/anacdump.txt, as well as
the /root directory of the system being upgraded.

I think the only real solution is going to be to write the traceback out with a
USB floppy drive. Otherwise one can goto VC2 and do what you need with
/tmp/anacdump.txt.
