Comment 8 Graham Scott Watson 2013-02-01 23:55:14 EST
Not entirely sure what triggered this while re-installing F18. * Recreated a basic single local disk LVM layout manually using the installer. * After correctly defining mounts and exiting partitioner the installer displayed "Please complete items marked...." * Went back into partitioner, made no adjustments, exited partitioner, no "Please complete items marked...." message this time * Continued on to install phase, anaconda crashed while 'preparing to install' Package: anaconda-18.37.11-1.fc18.x86_64 OS Release: Fedora release 18

Just clicked 'Begin installation'. Package: anaconda-18.37.11-1.fc18.x86_64 OS Release: Fedora release 18
Comment 12 Graham Scott Watson 2013-02-16 10:34:18 EST
One additional detail; Existing partition I was attempting to delete was a dm-crypt device.
Comment 13 Brian Lane 2013-02-18 19:39:57 EST
Are all of your reports from livecds? When this happens what does the output of mount look like? lvm and wipefs are indicating that the partition is is use so the PV isn't removed and wipefs won't wipe it.

This bug seems to be fixed in F19. Isn't?
Comment 15 Fedora End Of Life 2013-12-21 05:28:50 EST
This message is a reminder that Fedora 18 is nearing its end of life. Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 18. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '18'. Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 18's end of life. Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 18 is end of life. If you would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 18's end of life. Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes bugs or makes them obsolete.
Comment 16 Fedora End Of Life 2014-02-05 10:04:04 EST
Fedora 18 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2014-01-14. Fedora 18 is no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug. If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this bug. Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
