Description of problem:
Install ws 3 on a dual-xeon nfs/samba file server. Manually 
partition  to ensure adequate swap space (4g ram and swap for rsync). 
Has a scsi array hanging off it that has been lvm'd but is not 
changed in the partitioning. proceed with package selection and off 
it goes to check dependencies. Warns that there is an invalid 
argument to /dev/sdb4 - one of the UNCHANGED lvs. Hit ignore or 
cancel and anaconda crashes. Error file written to floppy is attached

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.manually partition /dev/sda, leaving scsi (lvm)array /dev/sdb alone
2.continue to select packages
3.watch anaconda crash
    

Actual Results:  Anaconda crashes, says safe to reboot - but install 
is not functional or repairable

Expected Results:  should be no change to sdb4, should finish install 
without changes, and boot into ws

Device that's larger than 1TB?
Comment 4 Steve Chaffee 2004-05-06 21:10:29 EDT
yes. Device is split via lvm into 3 volumes of 474G each, with about 
250G left as spare for future growth - i.e. no lv created for the 
spare.
