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