Description Clyde E. Kunkel 2007-09-20 13:36:00 EDT
Description of problem:
Anaconda (or mkinitrd?) does not create an initrd image that starts all software
raidsets  needed for LVs

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
anaconda 11.3.0.28

How reproducible: every time


Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot i386 FC8T2 DVD
2. specify NOMPATH (have to do to even get anaconda to see all raids and LVs)
3. select create custom partitioning
4. create layout with / on an LV
5. install with default software
6. first boot fails during initrd with / LV not being found
  
Actual results: 6 above


Expected results: normal install


Additional info:

This bug was presernt with FC7T3 and final, but specifying NOMPATH allowed
workaround.  A BZ (237456) was entered, but not resolved since workaround
existed. Tried NODMRAID, but didn't work at all during install LV detection.

I also went to console 2 and manually started all raidsets with mdadm.

Attaching anaconda log from install.

Were you reusing a pre-existing LV?
Comment 3 Clyde E. Kunkel 2007-10-12 16:03:18 EDT
Yes.
Comment 4 Jeremy Katz 2007-10-12 16:32:14 EDT
Okay, then this is the bug that Chris fixed up yesterday.
