Description of problem:
After configuring the disks, the install options, and choosing packages, the
installer began to format. When I looked back (less then 5 mins), it had
crashed with an unhandled exception. I believe it got through the format, but
I'm not sure. The unhandled exception window told me to file a bug report and
to give the trace/dump I've attached below.
I had to restart the installation. I'm not sure I got ALL the packages I
selected before (I tried to mimic the previous install as closely as possible),
but it didn't have any issues the second time around.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Red Hat 9.0
Trace/Dump from Anaconda attached.
Created attachment 92455 [details]
Dump provided by the Anaconda program after crashing
You are getting lots of SCSI errors during the install - it looks like some type
of disk/hardware failure.
