These bugs are all the same problem:
The only time I managed to get past this error, I received an error (not an exception) about being unable to initialize swap, and then anaconda exited.
I'm running into the exact same problems using the 3.4 loop3 installer. Was on the IRC channel yesterday and was told that it was my fault because I burned the DVD too fast. Burned it again at 1x, fired it up, same problem occurred. I'm not impressed. I've used the same DVD to install SL on 3 other systems, what could be different about this one?
Windows XP install CD detects and formats the drive no problem, scanned it for errors, bad sectors.. nothing. Next I'm going to try a GParted live CD or the Ultimate Boot CD... either way still pretty pissed that this won't work.
