Description Martin Kolman 2017-04-07 08:01:42 EDT
Description of problem:
Tried to add a couple partitions for the mixed exception test case, had to add logic partitions due to MBR partitioning. I have added and removed a VG before this crash, so that might have influenced things.

Version-Release number of selected component:
anaconda-26.21.1-1

The following was filed automatically by anaconda:
anaconda 26.21.1-1 exception report

Similar problem has been detected:

Found a simpler reproducer:
- create an unencrypted /boot primary partition
- create unencrypted / extended partition
- try to create encrypted xfs /home logical partition 
-> Crash! :)

Comment 10 Vojtech Trefny 2017-04-10 15:01:47 EDT
"04:17:35,068 DEBUG blivet: removing empty extended partition from sda"

Changing component to blivet, it automatically removes the extended partition after creating, because it is empty.
