Description Adam Williamson 2011-10-25 22:23:21 EDT
Well, I think the summary's accurate.

F16 TC2 and the pre-RC1 test image are both crashing for me after I select 'basic storage devices' in a particular VM. The VM has two disks attached; it's the second, vdb, which causes it to crash, I think. I think that disk is a 'stale' RAID member, it was part of a software RAID array I created for testing, but the other member of that array doesn't really exist any more.

abrt thinks the crash is a dupe of 731177, but I don't think so, as TC2 should have that selinux-policy fix. I'm attaching the traceback.

Proposing as a blocker as it's an installer crash, though it may wind up being NTH, since this is a pretty silly disk setup and I could probably work around it by zeroing out the drive or something.
Comment 3 Adam Williamson 2011-10-26 16:19:36 EDT
un-proposing, this is caused by dirty RAID which we don't support anyway - even if we fix the crash you wouldn't be able to install to it. so it's not critical.

Have you seen this at all in F18 testing?  I seem to recall some testing of incomplete RAIDs, but don't remember the exact conclusions.
Comment 5 Adam Williamson 2012-11-29 22:57:51 EST
Well, we have other bugs for it now. So we can probably close this one. But pretty much all incomplete multi-member devices are causing anaconda to crash in Beta, it has no handling for them. See https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=873224 , https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=876441 .
