A new Flyspray task has been opened. Details are below.

Attached to Project - Frugalware
Summary - Segmentation fault in installer
Task Type - Bug Report
Category - Installer
Status - Unconfirmed
Assigned To -
Operating System - i686
Severity - Medium
Priority - Normal
Reported Version - 1.1
Due in Version - Undecided
Due Date - Undecided
Details - When - for some reasons - you decide to interrupt the installer (in my case it was netinstall) and then start it again (restart the computer) using partitioning from previous install WITHOUT formatting (I wanted to use previously downloaded packages in /mnt/target/var/cache/pacman-g2/pkg - slow net connection) the installer crashes with segfault after choosing packages.
I repeated it twice or three times, doesn't matter if choosing exactly the same packages or changing my prev choice.
The message was "transaction already started" or something like that - sorry, haven't written it down - it was very late and I was in a hurry to finish my work.
Seems like pacman-g2 found a lock in /var/run and could not deal with it.
