Description Michel Alexandre Salim 2007-09-13 22:35:33 EDT
Description of problem: Installing from the live x86_64 image, I encountered the following Anaconda bugs: - If all partitions declared were on LVM, Anaconda crashes as soon as I hit Next - If I put /boot on a primary partition, Anaconda crashes soon after the timezone selection dialog (as soon as it has to write to disk) I have turned off all swap devices (verified by running top) Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): anaconda-126.96.36.199-1 How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Install to Hard Drive, custom partition, define only root on LVM 2. Install to Hard Drive, custom partition, /boot on primary, root on LVM Actual results: Both failed. See attached traces Expected results: First case should produce a warning, second case should work Additional info: Swap is off. Disk partitioned by openSUSE's installer. Installation attempted on a Thinkpad T61 (Core 2 Duo)

Comment 3 Michel Alexandre Salim 2007-09-15 19:44:49 EDT
As it turns out, Fedora's Anaconda (or parted) does not allow logical volume names that contain dashes, which is allowed by openSUSE. Downgrading this to an enhancement request: properly handle existing LV names
Comment 4 Robin Bowes 2007-09-17 19:19:33 EDT
Hmmm, I had a similar problem without dashes in lv names. My lv names are lv_root, lv_usr, etc.
Comment 5 Michel Alexandre Salim 2007-09-17 19:51:34 EDT
So basically, the sanity checks that are run when the user attempts to create a new LV should also be carried out on the existing LVs -- the current assumption, I think, is that all the LVs are created through Red Hat/Fedora tools and thus follow the same naming constraints.

This is better in rawhide.
