Yeap, use preupgrade-cli. And also file a bug, but provide full X.org
log and dmesg if possible.
I think that you might have misunderstood me. Preugrade, the
application, is working fine. Anaconda is crashing/halting/whatever.
Anyway, I tried what you suggested, but there wasn't any difference.
1) Can Anaconda be put into text mode for preupgrade (i.e., how do I
change the grub.conf entry)
2) Where are any Anaconda messages going to be recorded?
