Description Paul Barker 2003-07-23 12:16:02 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1)

Description of problem:
After creating an LVM based install and selecting the packages to install the 
graphical installer crashes. 

(I have now successfully installed this system using the text based installer, 
however I couldn't do this from scratch as it is not possible to create an LVM 
PV with the text based system)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot installer
2.Partition with Disk Druid (I use LVM)
3.Customise packages
4.Proceed with install

Expected Results:  I would have expected the install to proceed correctly ;)

Dump from installer crash

This is the dump produced by the installer.

Comment 2 Paul Barker 2003-07-23 12:19:55 UTC
Having thought some more it may be that this bug only occurs if I step 
backwards through a couple of screens before proceeding with the install. 
(Initially I had not given enough disk space to /usr/local so went back and de-
selected a couple of software packages).

Did you choose not to format your root fs?

Comment 4 Paul Barker 2003-07-23 19:41:30 UTC
I believe that the first time this happened was on a cold install and the root 
fs was brand new and would be formatted. It did happen after the format. The 
installer warned me about a lack of space on /usr so I used the "back" buttons 
to go back and de-select some packages. 

I then used the "next" buttons to retry the install.

Bingo.  Fixed in CVS

Comment 6 Jeremy Katz 2006-04-24 18:32:51 UTC
Mass-closing lots of old bugs which are in MODIFIED (and thus presumed to be
fixed).  If any of these are still a problem, please reopen or file a new bug
against the release which they're occurring in so they can be properly tracked.
