Description Gene Czarcinski 2009-09-27 03:59:12 UTC
Description of problem:
Defining an lvm partition ("/") causes anaconda to die.  Debug info is attached.

I believe that this problem is actually in lvm2 although I am reporting it against anaconda ... why the sudden usage of /dev/dm-N rather than /dev/mapper/<whatever>

Currently, this should be a show-stopper for F12 beta!

Use Fedora-20090923-x86_64-DVD.iso or a recent boot.iso image to perform a network install from the current "rawhide" tree. The issue was fixed in "rawhide" on 2009-09-25 issuing new packages for lvm2, device-mapper, etc.

Comment 3 Gene Czarcinski 2009-09-27 18:15:23 UTC
Tested:
http://alt.fedoraproject.org/pub/alt/stage/12-Beta-TC/Fedora-12-Beta-TC-x86_64-DVD/Fedora-12-Beta-x86_64-DVD.iso

Works now.  Closing as fixed in rawhide
