Re: machine powers off during FC3 install

I didn't say FC2, I said FC3 the first time.
either way as I said, I have the same problem.

I think the problem is that, more then one selection has the same
dependencies, and when dependencies cross like that, then the anaconda
install just quits,  without any sort of error message telling you
what the heck is going on...   redhat has a BAD habit of that,  not
enough error checking in anaconda.   I'm almost positive thats the
problem, because if I uncheck items that don't cross, the install goes
along fine,  so its gotta be erroring out when there are dependency
errors, its just not telling you that.
why it doesn't I have no idea, and really should be reported to bugzilla.
