Proposed Blocker:
"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"
Comment 2 Andre Robatino 2013-09-24 16:27:59 EDT
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.

Comment 3 Fedora Update System 2013-09-25 12:03:38 EDT
anaconda-20.20-1.fc20 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 20.
Comment 4 Mike Ruckman 2013-09-25 12:20:39 EDT
Discussed this in 2013-09-25 Blocker Review Meeting [1]. 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"

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.
