Comment 1 Jasper O. Hartline 2007-04-17 12:07:29 UTC
Here is the LiveCD image I created which demonstrates this problem:

It is 170MB.
Simply burn it to a CD, boot it, login as:
User: root
Password: livecd

Then execute:

Simply follow the Anaconda installation procedure.
This demonstrated the failure with returnLocalHeader().

Created attachment 152795 [details]

Reproduced in vmware.

Comment 3 Jonathan Steffan 2007-04-18 05:07:50 UTC
Reproduced in VMWare

Comment 5 Chris Lumens 2007-04-18 14:13:51 UTC
Is this reproducible with F7 test 3 or rawhide?

Comment 6 Jasper O. Hartline 2007-04-22 16:01:57 UTC
I just dove into rawhide and created a LiveCD, with Anaconda and Kadischi
installed with the package payload, and initiated the install operation, I do
not see any problems so far. Everything works good.

Partitioning, package selection, installation all are going great, as if it were
a stock installer disc.
I will go ahead and stress test the Anaconda in development and if I come across
any more issues I will open a new bug report.

Thank you guys for your time.

Comment 7 Chris Lumens 2007-04-23 14:28:44 UTC
