Anaconda uses btrfs when lvm is selected in text mode
Last modified: 2013-10-10 07:49:48 EDT
Description of problem:
When using text mode for anaconda installations the default is to use LVM, however resulting system is btrfs.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Begin text installation of F20 Alpha RC4
2. Select disk leaving defaults (LVM)
3. Install and reboot.
This occurs on both ARM and x86 in F20 Alpha RC4
"When using the guided partitioning flow, the installer must be able to: Complete an installation using any combination of disk configuration options it allows the user to select"
Confirmed. I also checked that the last compose where this worked properly was RC1 (RC2 also used btrfs and RC3 couldn't do text install at all). I should have caught it since I always test text install and usually do a "df -T" afterwards to check the filesystems (they also appear at the beginning of installation). The above criteria is for Beta specifically, BTW, I didn't see anything under Alpha criteria.
anaconda-20.20-1.fc20 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 20.
Discussed this in 2013-09-25 Blocker Review Meeting . This was validated as an AcceptedBlocker. It violates the following F20 beta release criterion for lvm partitioning in text installs: "Complete an installation using any combination of disk configuration options it allows the user to select"
* should fix your issue,
* was pushed to the Fedora 20 testing repository,
* should be available at your local mirror within two days.

Verified fixed in 20 Beta TC1 (anaconda-20.21-1). This anaconda has been pushed to stable, so if no one else sees this, the bug can be closed.
Closing per above. pwhalen, please re-open if you're still seeing this as of TC2.
