Description Fabian Deutsch 2014-09-11 11:51:35 UTC
Description of problem:
Anaconda fails with a traceback when the following storage configuration is used:

clearpart --all --initlabel
bootloader --append="console=ttyS0 quiet" --timeout=1

part biosboot --size=1
part /boot --size=512 --fstype ext4 --label=Boot --asprimary

part pv.01 --size 5000
volgroup HostVG pv.01
logvol /config --vgname=HostVG --size=64 --name=Config --fstype=ext4
logvol none --vgname=HostVG --size=4000 --name=ImagePool --thinpool --chunksize=128  # to fix append: --metadatasize=4
logvol / --vgname=HostVG --size=3000 --name=Image-0.0 --thin --poolname=ImagePool --fstype=ext4 --fsoptions=discard

It is solved when setting the --metadatasize option on the thinpool related line. Tho I do not know what a sane default value is ..

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
anaconda 21.48.3-1 exception report

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run kickstart with storage configuration from above

Actual results:

Expected results:

IIUIC this does not need to be passed to lvm (at least lvcreate) at best the default value is calculated like lvm does.
