Description David Lehman 2013-11-12 14:18:45 EST
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1027714 +++

Description of problem:
I had a previous F20 LVM installation. I wanted to reuse swap, /boot and /, and delete /home. I achieved that, but I could not enlarge / to occupy space reclaimed by deleting /home. Anaconda claims that the partition is not resizable.

Please see the video.

Also please notice that the free space counter is totally off, not reflecting deleted partitions.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
anaconda 20.25.6

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. create /boot as a standard partition and swap, / and /home on LVM
2. install, then reboot again into the installer
3. reuse swap and /boot
4. delete /home
5. try to reuse / and enlarge it to occupy space reclaimed by deleting /home
6. see that the partition refuses to be enlarged

Verified on RHEL-7.0-20140210.0 with python-blivet-0.18.23-1.el7. It's possible enlarge '/' mountpoint.
