Description Doug Chapman 2006-03-07 16:05:32 EST
Description of problem:

I did a RHEL3U7 install using LVM.  One disk was used for LVM, all other
partitions were removed using disk druid.  All went well.

I then did another install using software RAID5.  I deleted all partitions,
including the LVM logical and physical volumes in disk druid.  Anaconda later
died with the following exception:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/gui.py", line 943, in handleRenderCallback
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/iw/progress_gui.py", line 156, in renderCallback

-> raise SystemError, "vgremove failed"

2. do another install, use disk druid to delete old LVM and create RAID on all disks
Actual results:
anaconda dies with exception as described above

Expected results:
it should work!
