It is not him alone. I am having the almost similar experience too.
While I appreciate the effort of rewritting anaconda, what I fail to
appreciate is what worked even in the last release, does not work with
the newer one.
What is the use of new features if it is not usable? Someday, I shall
take it up to the devel list.
I too am a victim of anaconda failing on both F10 and F11. I was at a
friend's place yesterday trying to install Fedora on his PC. F11 failed
to install. Then I tried F10. That too failed. I suspected the hardware
and requested the friend to upgrade RAM from 256 MB to 1 GB. He did. But
the problem still persisted. I had no Internet connectivity at the
friend's place to get some online help Google, #fedora, etc. There is a
pressing need to get Linux working on that PC. Therefore I have decided
to install another distro for this friend.
I am going to try to install CentOS on that PC tomorrow. If that doesn't
suit, I'll install Ubuntu on it. I have downloaded the Ubuntu ISO image
today in preparation.
I am a bit embarrassed because of this situation. I have been advocating
Fedora wherever I could from the past few years. Maybe, I do not
understand the goals of Fedora project properly. But, is Fedora really
suitable for casual non-CS users? I have my doubts.
No offence meant to anybody in the community. But yesterday I suddenly
strongly felt the need for better QA and LTS.
This issue certainly needs top priority. I hope for a F11 respin with
the anaconda fixes.
