Fedora 11 bug?


Ok...I don't know if any of you experienced this but it looks like Fedora 11 already has a bug (and I'm not even done installing it yet )

On anaconda; once you've layed out your partitions and such, it brings you to a screen asking where you want to put the boot loader. On the box where it says "Boot loader operating system list" I usually like to rename it (default label is "Fedora"). But when you try to rename it; anaconda crashes...

Maybe Fedora should have been pushed back another week?

Any of you experiencing the same issue? I've tried it on 3 separate machines and I got the same issue...

Anaconda crashes when the "add" button is clicked in the Bootloader OS list dialog?
I remember seeing a bunch of bug reports like this - yours looks like this one:
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Commo...otloader_entry
... the workaround there is the same for you - don't edit the entry in anaconda, do it after the install.

If you don't find it and you can reproduce it, then file a report.
http://bugzilla.redhat.com/
... but you may just need to add a comment against the above report that it happens on fresh installs too, not just upgrades.

Yup that's the one...however it does happen on fresh installs too.

And I did the work around. I'll comment on bugzilla to see if it's a "valid" bug or it's "just me"

well thas is the definition of fedora -- it's not working "right"
push and push to see what can be done ,with all that is new .
this is why i tell "new" users that unless you WANT to learn how to "fix" it - before , during,and after -- the install then DO NOT USE IT
