Description Suzanne Hillman 2006-04-10 15:23:09 UTC
Description of problem:
lvm-related kernel panic on viper during the first reboot after installation.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Don't know? It's FC-5 GOLD.

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Get a viper (the one I'm testing with is in the Westford office)
2. Install FC-5.
3. Reboot when it tells you to.
  
Actual results:
(the following was captured via serial console, so some stuff did not make it to
the console, specifically, the /sbin/lvm errors. They were very non-specific
errors, but I can reproduce when in the office tomorrow and copy them down if
needed)

powernow-k8: init not cpu 0
powernow-k8: init not cpu 0
Red Hat nash version 4.2.1.6 starting
  Reading all physical volumes.  This may take a while...
  Found volume group "VolGroup01" using metadata type lvm2
  Couldn't find device with uuid 'wdLUK3-Uw50-6oMy-yaUj-R9o9-jgQY-b0fyPp'.
  Couldn't find all physical volumes for volume group VolGroup00.
  Couldn't find device with uuid 'wdLUK3-Uw50-6oMy-yaUj-R9o9-jgQY-b0fyPp'.
  Couldn't find all physical volumes for volume groupKernel panic - not
syncin! VolGroup00.
   Volume group "Vo

Expected results:
No lvm troubles with finding the physical volumes, therefore no related kernel
panic.

Changed assignment and component.

Comment 2 Alasdair Kergon 2006-04-24 14:04:09 UTC
This is a common problem when installing onto a system that already had some
LVM2 data on some of its disks that wasn't wiped first.  The latest lvm2 package
(2.02.05) should help anaconda and the initrd handle this better in future.

Comment 3 Milan Broz 2007-11-02 12:39:02 UTC
I hope that problem with residual metadata from some previous installation is
now handled correctly during install process.

Please, if you see this bug again, please submit report for recent Fedora
version, thanks.
