Description Kamil Páral 2015-10-30 04:03:33 EDT
Description of problem:
My guess how this happened: I have a firmware RAID with 2 disks. Then I go to BIOS and switch RAID mode to AHCI. But the disk RAID signatures are not wiped. Then I boot F23 netinst and anaconda crashes.

Version-Release number of selected component:
anaconda-23.19.10-1

The following was filed automatically by anaconda:

Comment 13 Adam Williamson 2015-10-30 04:09:34 EDT
IIRC, we've generally taken the position that it's the sysadmin's job to deal with stale RAID metadata, not anaconda's, and anaconda isn't expected to handle installing to a single disk split out of a RAID set like this. It'd be nice if it didn't crash, but I'm -1 blocker. I can probably pull out some precedents if we need 'em.

There are two tracebacks in /tmp, this is the second one. I also see two "anaconda crashed" windows, one of them active, the second inactive, but overlaid in the middle of the screen and can't be put away.
Comment 15 Kamil Páral 2015-10-30 04:30:35 EDT
After running "wipefs -a" on both disks, anaconda booted fine the next time. It would be great if a) anaconda did not crash b) either advised me to wipe the disks manually or offered to do that for me. Otherwise the user has no idea what's wrong and how to fix it.

I'm sure, that why I even haven't proposed this :)
Comment 17 Fedora End Of Life 2016-11-24 07:59:16 EST
This message is a reminder that Fedora 23 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 23. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora  'version'
of '23'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora 23 is end of life. If you would still like 
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version 
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Comment 18 Fedora End Of Life 2016-12-20 10:15:31 EST
Fedora 23 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2016-12-20. Fedora 23 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
bug.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
