You're going to have to provide a little more information than that.

A "crash" will completely halt installation. You'll see a dialog box informing you that a fatal error has occurred, along with a traceback. So, I'm not sure what you mean when you say anaconda "crashed several times".

If you are able to reproduce this issue, please provide a specific set of steps to follow.

Attaching log files to the report is also very useful for debugging. You can find them in /tmp (anything ending in "log"). In the event of a traceback, a log file of the form "/tmp/anaconda-tb-*" (* is some random set of characters) will be generated--be sure to attach this if there is one.

Hi Samantha,

I'm so sorry and I know I didn't give you enough information.
Actually, it wasn't *my* bug. Someone complained about it in the "Red Hat User Club" community in Google+, but refused to come here and bug report it. So I asked as many details as I could before he left the computer and that's why I came here with only this.

You can see the thread in here:

I know it's hard to do any thing without knowing at least the step during installation in which it used to freeze (even though I've heard of people complaining about freezing during manual partitioning), but I thought reporting with data was better than no report at all.

Best regards,
