Comment 4 Clyde E. Kunkel 2009-08-06 14:57:39 UTC
This was encountered when trying rawhide of 20090806 and the x server failed however allowing a text mode install.  When the traceback occurred, selecting save and bugzilla worked as opposed to failing during a gui session (bz  anaconda loops endlessly when trying to save traceback.)

I probably should have killed the submission...sorry for the noise.

BTW VNC install seems to be ok (except for 499854).
