Description Diego Flores 2003-05-02 11:12:26 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows 98)

Description of problem:
The thing is, that, before the package installation procedure is
finished, a window pop up telling me something like:

An unexpected error occurred in anaconda or something
And then, outputs the text:

Traceback (innermost last)
File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 633, in ?
 intf.run(id, dispatch, ConfigFileData)
File "/usr/bin/anaconda/text.py", line 427, in run

And the installation process stops there

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

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot istall from diskette. Choose text mode install
2.Custom disk partitioning
3.Select packages to install manually

Actual Results:  4.After the package install started, more or less after 
installing the perl packages, a popup window appears telling me the above, then
offering the OK button.
Once pressed, the system reboots, but the it cannot boot because
not even GRUB gets configured

Expected Results:  It should have finished installing packages, then it should 
allowd to configure printers, X11, sound, etc, and then reboots
with a system ready to function.

Additional info:

Mainboard with OPTi Viper IDE Controller
Pentium (S) 120 MHz
Drive: Maxtor 1.2 Gb (not too new, but with no bad blocks)
