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):
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.
