Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
.Anaconda successfully finishes the installation without `btrfs-progs` package Previously, anaconda tried to install the `btrfs-progs` package if it detected a Btrfs device. However, there was no such package in the RHEL 8 repository. As a consequence, anaconda showed a dialog with a warning message about a missing package during the installation. With this update, anaconda does not try to install the `btrfs-progs` package, and the installation finishes successfully without showing a warning message about the missing `btrfs-progs` package.

Anaconda error

Description of problem:

During installation on a host which has a BTRFS filesystem on any disk not used by this very installation, the BTRFS signature is detected and btrfs-progs is added as package requirement. But it does not exist in RHEL 8.

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

RHEL 8 Beta

How reproducible:

Install RHEL 8 Beta on a host that has a BTRFS signature on any unused filesystem. I will attach a small signature for testing below.

Actual results:

Anaconda will complain that btrfs-progs is missing, see screenshot "Anaconda error".

Expected results:

It should just ignore any BTRFS filesystems.

Additional info:

anaconda.log contains:
08:19:27,922 DBG payload: added package requirement 'btrfs-progs' for storage, strong=True

Sample BTRFS Signature

This signature can be used to create a testcase without the need of a running version of btrfs-progs.

This is a duplicate of bug 1676403.

However, I won't close this bug because you don't have access to the original bug report.

Comment 5 Radek Vykydal 2020-03-31 14:54:25 UTC
This should be fixed by rebase to upstream where the issue was fixed in https://github.com/rhinstaller/anaconda/pull/2322.

Forget it.  If this is still a problem with RHEL 8.1, it can be fixed in RHEL 8.2.
