The actual problem is that there are 3 things that provide libotf.so.0
and one of them is openmpi-psm.  There is a newer version of openmpi
that obsoletes that rpm and yum can handle it, but anaconda can not
handle that obsolete. Because of that, it breaks the installation.

This issue should be taken care of on the 6.4 ISOs.

So, if you do not install openmpi items, you should be OK.
