screenshot with loop devices

Description of problem:
When running graphical (vnc) installation of F16 on s390x, filtering UI shows loop devices (loop0 - loop2) in addition to DASD drives. See attached screenshot.

These loop devices are:
-bash-4.2# losetup -a
/dev/loop0: [0001]:5674 (/squashfs.img)
/dev/loop1: [0700]:3 (/run/initramfs/squashfs/LiveOS/rootfs.img)
/dev/loop2: [0001]:6012 (/overlay)

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. start the installation in vnc mode
2. proceed to "Specialized Storage Devices"
3. inspect "Basic Devices" tab
Actual results:
loop devices are available to be used for the installation

Expected results:
loop devices are not shown
Comment 2 Ales Kozumplik 2011-09-23 07:51:53 EDT
I can see this on x86_64, both alpha and beta-tc2.
Comment 3 Ales Kozumplik 2011-09-23 08:33:04 EDT
David, I can reproduce this easily so in case you haven't started working on this yet you can assign it to me.
Comment 5 Tim Flink 2011-10-03 12:50:53 EDT
Discussed in the 2011-09-30 blocker bug review meeting. Rejected as a blocker bug for Fedora 16 final because it doesn't hit any release criteria, only shows up with advanced storage devices and doesn't prevent installation.

However, it can't be fixed post-release and it does look bad to have non-usable devices in the installer. Accepted as NTH for Fedora 16 final.

Comment 8 Dan HorĂ¡k 2011-10-21 08:26:06 EDT
I can confirm that loop devices are not shown with anaconda-16.22
Comment 9 Adam Williamson 2011-11-02 21:46:47 EDT
let's close this, then, as anaconda is well past 16.22.
