Pasting non-private description: Description of problem: Can't install RHEL 5.3 variant (i386) on F11 (x86_64) machine [lvcreate failed for Root] Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): qemu-0.10.50-6.kvm86.fc11 qemu-kvm-tools-0.10.50-6.kvm86.fc11 qemu-system-mips-0.10.50-6.kvm86.fc11 qemu-kvm-0.10.50-6.kvm86.fc11 libvirt-python-0.6.4-2.fc11 qemu-system-sparc-0.10.50-6.kvm86.fc11 qemu-system-arm-0.10.50-6.kvm86.fc11 qemu-system-sh4-0.10.50-6.kvm86.fc11 qemu-system-m68k-0.10.50-6.kvm86.fc11 qemu-user-0.10.50-6.kvm86.fc11 qemu-system-ppc-0.10.50-6.kvm86.fc11 qemu-system-cris-0.10.50-6.kvm86.fc11 qemu-system-x86-0.10.50-6.kvm86.fc11 libvirt-0.6.4-2.fc11 qemu-img-0.10.50-6.kvm86.fc11 qemu-common-0.10.50-6.kvm86.fc11 How reproducible: 100% on this machine Steps to Reproduce: 1. download RHEL5.3 variant ISO 2. Set up a new virtual machine booting from the iso 3. After package dep resolution, I get the error: lvcreate failed for Root Actual results: LVM operation failed lvcreate failed for Root The installer will now exit [ Reboot ] Expected results: Install works. :)

Setting version to rawhide, since these are packages from the virt-preview repository.
Comment 3 Mark McLoughlin 2009-06-12 03:26:49 EDT
Assuming you used virt-manager, please include ~/.virt-manager/virt-manager.log. If you're not using virt-manager, please include the guest XML config Also, include the guest log file from /var/log/libvirt/qemu It'd be good to get a hold of the anaconda log files - e.g. switch to the shell on tty2 and scp the logfiles of the guest Could you try downgrading to qemu-0.10.5-2.fc11 to see if that works? i.e. is it just a regression in rawhide?

Apparently this was originally seen with the F-11 versions, moving back to F-11
Comment 7 Benjamin Kahn 2009-06-12 10:30:31 EDT
Created attachment 347576 [details] Virt Manager Log several attempts to install F11 and RHEL 5.3 variant None of the installs worked, but the RHEL 5.3 installs always failed at the lvcreate step.
Comment 9 Justin M. Forbes 2009-06-12 11:48:01 EDT
It appears that this particular image uses a kickstart which lays out more than 8GB of file systems. The default in virt-manager is 8GB so the lvcreate fails because there is not enough space available. Increase disk size and it will work fine.
