FC5 and FC6 are EOL. Is still problem in FC-7 and above?

Comment 3 Robert Allerstorfer 2008-03-26 14:53:12 UTC
Yes, nothing changed since I submitted this bug one year ago.

Comment 4 Roman Rakus 2008-03-27 12:30:47 UTC
Yes. I have take a deeper look at the problem and probably it's anaconda's
cause. Adding to CC.
