Comment 14 Steve Tyler 2012-10-05 18:30:01 EDT
Reproduced with: 1. Click "Installation Destination". 2. Click "Continue". With Fedora-18-Nightly-20121003.08-x86_64-Live-desktop.iso in a VM. The target was an empty VM disk image: $ qemu-img create f18-test-3.img 10G $ hexdump -C f18-test-3.img 00000000 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 |................| * 280000000 $ qemu-kvm -m 2048 -hda f18-test-3.img -cdrom ~/xfr/fedora/nightly-composes/Fedora-18-Nightly-20121003.08-x86_64-Live-desktop.iso -usb -vga qxl -boot menu=on
Comment 15 Adam Williamson 2012-10-05 18:55:33 EDT
Just picking an empty disk as an install target for a live install with anaconda 18.13. Package: anaconda-18.13-1.fc18.x86_64 OS Release: Fedora release 18
Comment 16 Adam Williamson 2012-10-05 19:04:15 EDT
note that, interestingly, you can simply go to the disk selection spoke, have a disk selected, and click 'Done' at top left, and it'll work - anaconda will go with autopart on that disk, assuming it has enough free space. you don't actually have to click 'Continue'. that seems a little strange from a UI perspective, but it works around this bug.
Comment 17 Adam Williamson 2012-10-05 19:05:56 EDT
even with that workaround, this is obviously a beta blocker, it prevents access to custom partitioning or the 'help me free space' process, so it hits Alpha "The installer must be able to complete an installation using automatic partitioning to any sufficiently large target disk, whether unformatted, empty, or containing any kind of existing data".
Comment 18 Adam Williamson 2012-10-05 20:28:09 EDT
I believe this bug actually happens _only_ if the target disk is empty (no partitions, I guess is the definition of 'empty' here.) if the target disk is populated, it seems to work OK (though of course you might hit https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=863348 later).
Comment 19 Tim Flink 2012-10-05 20:35:18 EDT
I attempted to install in a VM with f18b-smoke5 (anaconda-18.13-1) using an empty disk When I selected the disk and attempted to use autopart, this traceback showed up. Package: anaconda-18.13 OS Release: Fedora release 18

I tried an install using f18b-smoke5 (anaconda-18.13-1) on a disk that had an old install of F18 on it. I hit https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=863593 which looks similar to my uneducated eyes but I could well be wrong.
Comment 21 Adam Williamson 2012-10-05 21:05:32 EDT
well you hit it later, which is interesting. I did a test with a populated disk where I could get into the guided 'free up space' workflow and then it crashed when trying to remove partitions - but it crashed with 863348, not 863593. I also did a test with a populated disk and using *custom* partitioning, and that actually worked properly: I could remove the existing partitions and create new ones and complete the install, all successfully.
Comment 22 John Reiser 2012-10-06 11:34:03 EDT
For Installation Destination, choose harddrive with GPT but no partitions. Click Continue. Package: anaconda-18.13 OS Release: Fedora release 18

This is kinda hastily put together, but you can try: updates=http://clumens.fedorapeople.org/13updates.img And then I'll deal with really submitting patches next week.

Comment 29 Kamil Páral 2012-10-15 10:20:52 EDT
I can't reproduce the original bug with anaconda 18.12 and therefore I can't verify that it's fixed. Steve, Tim, Adam, please try to reproduce with Beta TC4, thanks.

Comment 31 Adam Williamson 2012-10-15 20:24:56 EDT
I can still reproduce this with my test image that had 18.13, and I can't reproduce it in TC3 (which had 18.14) or TC4 (18.16), so we can close this (18.14 went stable).
