Description Martin Banas 2009-10-01 08:44:57 EDT
Description of problem:
Trying to change encryption status of partition ends with error message: The mount point "" is in use. Please pick another.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
anaconda 12.32

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. start the installation of latest rawhide
2. proceed to partitioning dialog and select "Create custom layout"
3. Create new partition with mount point (for example /, /boot, /home).
4. Edit the partition - select "Encrypt" and click OK.
5. Edit the partition again - deselect "Encrypt" and click OK.
Actual results:
Error message displayed:

Mount point in use

The mount point "/home" is in use. Please pick another.

Expected results:
There should be no such message.

Additional info:
Happens only when "Encrypt" field is selected/deselected. "Force to be a primary partition" and other are not affected by this behaviour.

Comment 2 James Laska 2009-10-09 14:54:07 EDT
The workaround for now seems to be either ...
 1) remove the partition, and create a new one to match the parameters you need.   
 2) Or, supply a temporary mount point (aka '/opt/foo'), click OK, then reedit that partition supplying the original mount point

Adding to F12Blocker so this doesn't fall off the radar.
