Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
anaconda-16.17

How reproducible:
always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. start the installation in x3270 console
2. connect via ssh to continue with the installation
3. start vnc server
4. in the filtering UI, select all DASD drives
5. continue with default values
6. use "Replace Existing Linux System(s)", click Next
7. select all drives to be used for the installation
8. click on Next

or:

6. create custom partitioning:
dasdb1    ext4     /boot
dasdc1    swap
dasdd1    ext4     /
7. click on Next
  
Actual results:
traceback

Expected results:
partitioning is created and written to disks

There is almost identical traceback when using only zFCP LUN for the installation:

Comment 3 Dan HorĂ¡k 2011-09-22 05:32:43 EDT
Created attachment 524367 [details]
add missing descriptions

This patch fixes the crashes, but I'm not sure it's a complete fix as I don't know the anaconda internals.
Comment 4 Jan Stodola 2012-07-02 04:42:17 EDT
Retested with anaconda-17.29, installations on both DASD and FCP drives finished successfully.

Closing this bug.
