Today I downloaded Fedora 17 Beta RC2 x86_64. Anaconda still prints the same error. The bug appears again. 

I check cups. It is still cups-1.5.2-1.fc17.x86_64. Is it too old to occur the problem?
Comment 2 Adam Williamson 2012-04-01 21:23:49 EDT
What did you try exactly? Are you trying to configure the printer for some reason?

Comment 3 Adam Williamson 2012-04-02 14:43:57 EDT
OK, we figured this out: it's triggered by trying to do a live install with /usr as a separate partition. It doesn't happen unless you create a separate /usr partition. I've reproduced.

So I'd say this is clearly not a beta blocker as none of our criteria require separate /usr to work at Beta stage (and not many people try to do so). It's _arguably_ a final blocker per "The installer must be able to create and install to any workable partition layout using any file system offered in a default installer configuration, LVM, software, hardware or BIOS RAID, or combination of the above", but that's only if we consider a /usr partition to be a 'workable partition layout', which is arguable - see http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/systemd/separate-usr-is-broken .

I'd say it's Beta NTH though, especially given https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=804913 : it seems that there are many problems with trying to install with /usr as a separate partition and the sensible fix would simply be not to allow you to mount anything on /usr at install time, and that's what anaconda team is planning to do. I think it would make sense to take that change for Beta.

So I vote -1 blocker, +1 NTH. Other votes?

-1 blocker, +1 NTH makes sense to me

We're going to need to figure out whether this is a workable partition layout if it isn't fixed for beta, though.
Comment 5 Ben Williams 2012-04-02 14:55:38 EDT
agree

1 blocker, +1 NTH makes sense to me
Comment 6 Ben Williams 2012-04-02 14:56:51 EDT
 -1 blocker rather
Comment 7 Jóhann B. Guðmundsson 2012-04-02 14:58:16 EDT
-1 blocker, +1 NTH...
Comment 8 Tim Flink 2012-04-02 15:07:55 EDT
OK, that makes -4 blocker, +4 NTH

Rejecting as blocker, accepting as NTH for F17 beta

Thank you, Adam. I agree with you. It should be F17Beta-NTH Blocker
Comment 10 Kamil Páral 2012-04-12 08:18:30 EDT
Beta is out, moving to F17 Final NTH
Comment 11 Brian Lane 2012-04-18 13:09:02 EDT
This patch is in Beta, /usr is not allowed to be on another partition. Please retest if you can.
Comment 12 Adam Williamson 2012-05-04 09:05:06 EDT
I'm pretty sure I checked this in Beta validation and /usr wasn't in the list. Let's close it, we can re-open if I'm wrong.
