The debug information by anaconda.

Exactly the same debug information is being returned while trying to initiate
Disk Druid.

Comment 3 Michael Fulbright 2003-03-10 22:19:34 UTC
I could not reproduce this issue - what did the original partition table look like?

Comment 4 Theocharis Athanasakis 2003-03-10 23:41:17 UTC
I think this might be caused by a crashed hard disk...
The partition table is just a "primary DOS partition" (FAT32).
