Description Justin L Croonenberghs 2002-11-01 17:57:56 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020830

Description of problem:
Anaconda seems to very occasionally flake out with an unhandled exception whilst
installing from the retail CDs/DVD. This problem occurs rarely, but seems mostly
limited to when I use a custom installation. Unhandled exception ALWAYS occurs
immediately once the installation actually starts. Occurs from both the CDs and
the DVD. Oh, and it's really difficult to reproduce. Don't I just make life fun? ;-)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Couldn't Reproduce

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Preform a custom installation - This seems to be the only way to reproduce
this bug, and it seems like it only happens when a custom individual package
list is produced. I have no idea which package is doing this.

Actual Results:  Can't reproduce this problem at will. I have no idea what
causes this.

Expected Results:  The installation should have continued. The point of
occurence is immediately after clicking Install, after package selection and
dependency verification. Yay.

Additional info:

I will be trying this install on different systems, to see if I can get it to
reproduce on any other hardware, when I get the time. I am running a Dell
Dimension 4300, so the hardware is all new and stuff. Don't really have much
else to offer....

Will attach dump file soon....
