I am attempting to perform a clean install of RH 8.0. This system had RH 7.1 installed previously and was working (X included)without any problems. When I attempt to install 8.0 the problems occur regardless of the install type (Personal Desktop, Workstation, Server, Custom). When I do a text based install and select the defaults for server install, it installs fine (but it has to be the defaults. Whenever I make any custom selections, it crashes there too). The installation starts through X, I select to remove all partitions on disk and I let the installation configure the partitions automatically. I am able to get all the way to when it starts to install the packages and it crashes telling me an unhandled exception had occured.
It reads something like this:
An unhandled exception had occurred. This is most likely a bug.
Please copy the fill text of this exception or dave the crash dump
to a floppy then file a detailed bug report against anaconda at
Traceback(most recent call last)
