Exclamation Fedora 16 Live Desktop - Can't install on harddrive

Hello,

I can successfully boot into Fedora 16 Live Desktop, but when I try to install it on my hard drive I get this error and the installation doesn't even start :

[root@localhost ~]# /usr/bin/python /usr/bin/anaconda-cleanup anaconda --liveinst --method=livecd:///dev/mapper/live-osimg-min --lang en_US.UTF-8

*** glibc detected *** /usr/bin/python: free(): invalid pointer: 0x0a104000 ***
*** glibc detected *** /usr/bin/python: malloc(): memory corruption: 0x0a103460 ***


This happens only when I try to install it on my SATAII drive! The install on an IDE drive works without problems.

Motherboard : AsRock G31M-GS
Disk : WD5000AZRX

Any ideas?

Thanks for your help.

Ehm..
Why not use the Icon in the activities bar? (gnome)
Or the Icon on the desktop? (kde)
Or the icon in the menu? (xfce/lxde)

Or simply the "liveinst" from CLI directly?

Of course I have tried to use the icons, but as soon as I click them nothing happens. So I have tried to start the install from command line to see what's wrong.

Re: Fedora 16 Live Desktop - Can't install on harddrive

Here's what I did to solve the problem :

1) booted from "Fedora 16 Live CD"
2) run "fdisk /dev/sda" and created a linux partition
3) run the liveinst command

Now everything works as it should
