Comment 3 Fedora Blocker Bugs Application 2016-09-08 13:19:11 UTC
Proposed as a Blocker for 25-beta by Fedora user me2 using the blocker tracking app because:

 Violates final release criteria:

Default application functionality 

All applications that can be launched using the standard graphical mechanism of a release-blocking desktop after a default installation of that desktop must start successfully and withstand a basic functionality test.

All applications installed by default in Fedora Workstation must comply with each MUST and MUST NOT guideline in the Applications and Launchers policy.

Comment 4 Michael Catanzaro 2016-09-10 03:19:16 UTC
This is too niche to be a release blocker. If Disks couldn't show partition tables at all or just failed to start, that's the sort of basic functionality that would be a release blocker.

Anyway, the error is being returned by udisks_block_call_format_finish, so let's see what the udisks (storaged) developers think of it.

Comment 5 Chris Murphy 2016-09-10 18:15:31 UTC
Has udisksd mounted any file system on the drive having its partition table changed? At the time of the error message what you do get for 'cat /proc/mounts'? And then also what do you get if you issue 'partprobe' on the command line?

Comment 6 Chris Murphy 2016-09-11 19:53:52 UTC
sfdisk exits with status 1, fails to re-read the partition table because device or resource is busy. Could be bug 1371761.

Comment 7 Tomas Smetana 2016-09-12 10:14:28 UTC
I don't have an environment for testing this at hand right now... However: there are quite suspicious AVC denials in the log too. Are you sure they're not related?

Comment 8 Geoffrey Marr 2016-09-13 01:57:45 UTC
Discussed during the 2016-09-12 blocker review meeting: [1]

The decision to delay the classification of this as a bug was made as we believe it may have been fixed, so we will delay the decision to re-test and clarify the report.

Comment 9 pavel raur 2016-09-13 07:41:16 UTC
With fully upddated fedora 25 disk works if you disable selinux, so its a problem in selinux. Attaching journal while formatting a flash drive and creating a partition with enforcing=0.
