8.3.2. Saving traceback messages without removeable media

If you receive a traceback error message during installation, you can usually save it to removeable media, for example a USB flash drive or a floppy disk.
If you do not have removeable media available on your system, you can scp the error message to a remote system.
When the traceback dialog appears, the traceback error message is automatically written to a file named /tmp/anacdump.txt. Once the dialog appears, switch over to a new tty (virtual console) by pressing the keys Ctrl + Alt + F2 and scp the message written to /tmp/anacdump.txt to a known working remote system.
