Comment 2 RHEL Product and Program Management 2011-09-19 11:10:38 UTC
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for inclusion
in a Red Hat Enterprise Linux maintenance release. Product Management has 
requested further review of this request by Red Hat Engineering, for potential
inclusion in a Red Hat Enterprise Linux Update release for currently deployed 
products. This request is not yet committed for inclusion in an Update release.

Comment 3 Harald Hoyer 2011-09-20 15:46:11 UTC
If you create a LVM layout, you really need to install
package lvm2, which requires 
device-mapper-libs, which requires 
and /sbin/dmsetup is in device-mapper.

Comment 5 Jan Stodola 2011-10-11 13:46:51 UTC
Tested with minimal package set on s390x and x86_64, LVM was not used. No errors in install.log found.
