Description Jaroslav Reznik 2013-08-19 09:30:31 EDT
This is a tracking bug for Change: OS Installer Support for LVM Thin Provisioning
For more details, see: http://fedoraproject.org//wiki/Changes/InstallerLVMThinProvisioningSupport

LVM has introduced thin provisioning technology, which provides greatly improved snapshot functionality in addition to thin provisioning capability. This change will make it possible to configure thin provisioning during OS installation.

The only missing piece is a way to select a usage profile in anaconda. You specify metadata size and chunk size via kickstart. The bug to add profiles to lvm2 for common thinp usage patterns is bug 958464.

Comment 3 Jaroslav Reznik 2013-10-21 10:13:43 EDT
I see 958464 in POST state but probably without profiles. Is it acceptable to consider this Change completed without it or not? FESCo asked me to finish review of Changes this week. Thanks.

Unfortunately this feature got torpedoed by a bad late change to dracut (not anaconda's fault at all). See https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=1040669 . We need to manage this, as best we can, in release messaging.

Docs guys were notified, it's not referred in the announcement. Moving to the NEW state so it will be cleared from Changes list.
