Default Anaconda-devel-list Digest, Vol 55, Issue 22

> Just by looking at the error I can tell you that this is a parted bug. Mind you, I have not read the whole story (so I could be wrong), but I'll bet you that this is related to 441244, which is fixed for 5.3.

[Manish] Thanks for the bug # Joel. I'd guessed the same. Parted
1.8.8 is out and part of fedora distro now, which works without a
crash.

[Manish] John I tried,
- With Fedora : FC7 failed, same err. FC9 worked (same err, no crash).
- Using partitioning from other distro (/liveCD) doesn't work, the
error persists.
- Interestingly, Centos installation worked correctly, on another disc
where i replicated the same partition-table.

As I need Centos only with no time to wait, I am trying to spin a
custom dvd - Centos5.2 with latest anaconda/parted. That should work
(hopefully).

Thanks,
-Manish
