This bug is also reproducible on Fedora 19. Is it possible to provide update for Fedora 19 too?

Comment 7 Jon Masters 2014-07-28 04:47:50 UTC
Scratch build for F19: http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=7201514

Comment 8 Jon Masters 2014-07-28 04:59:09 UTC
Sorry, I mean this one for F19 (which has the loop patch and tests as working - but I'm only using the kpartx binary after manually extracting it, didn't bother replacing the system package overall): http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=7201537
