Description Seb Payne 2005-06-30 11:41:38 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050405 Firefox/1.0 (Ubuntu package 1.0.2)

Description of problem:
When running the Anaconda Fedora Core 4 installation, either Graphical or Text, it crashes out as soon as it tries to partition the drive. But, if I then re-run the installation, it works fine. 

It is removing previous Linux partitions and replacing them with LVM.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start the Fedora Core Install process
2. Follow the install process (Remove All partions, Personal Software selection)
3. Start the actual Anaconda installation process

Actual Results:  Traceback (most recent call last):
 File "/usr/local/bin/anaconda, line 1160, in ?
    intf.rum(id, dispatch)
 File "/usr/lib/anaconda/text.py", line 496, in run
 File "/usr/lib/anaconda/dispatch.py", line 174 in gotoNext
 File "/usr/lib/anaconda/dispatch.py", line 242, in moveStep
    rc = apply(func, self.bindArgs(args))
 File "/usr/lib/anaconda/packages.py", line 582 in turnOnFilesystems
 File "/usr/lib/anaconda/fsset.py", line 1472, in createLogicalVolumes
 File "/usr/lib/anaconda/fsset.py", line 2066, in setupDevice
    raise SystemError, "pvcreate failed for %s" % (volume,)

System Error: pvcreate failed for <fsset.PartitionDevice instance at 0xb7a1d9ec>

Expected Results:  It should format the drives, install GRUB and install Fedora Core

Additional info:

Sorry if the error is not exactly correct but I had to re-type it all out again.
