Hi there,

I am trying to install Fedora 26 Server (Fedora-Server-dvd-x86_64-26-1.5.iso) on VMware Workstation 11.1.4 build-3848939. VM is setup normal (I reused the VM from a Fedora 23 Server, but cleaned the disc) - no EFI, 1 GB RAM, 1 CPU with two cores, 20 GB HDD, network, USB, display w/o 3D). I checked the installation image - it's OK.

I consistently run into the error "Pane is dead" in anaconda. Above: ValueError: math domain error. From there I can switch to the various logs and the shell, but am not experienced enough to see what's wrong. Maybe someone can give me a hint in the right direction.

CentOS 7 - no problems at all on the same machine.

*File "/sbin/anaconda". line 58. in (module) import p id File "/usr/l ib/pgthI:m3 .6/3ite-packages/pid/". line 8. in (module) import temp!‘ i le File "/usr/l ib64/pgthI:m3 .6/temp!‘ i le .119". line 45. in (module) from random import Random as _Random File "/usr/l ib64/pgthI:m3 .6/". line 59. in (module) LOG‘! = _log(4 .8) lueError : math domain error

Thanks for any tip,

To be honest, I've no idea about your problem. But from what I can see, I'd suggest you to look for this bug/fill a new bug in
