Description Émeric Maschino 2006-04-02 11:18:05 UTC
Description of problem:

Invoking system-config-lvm gives produces the following output in the console:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/system-config-lvm/system-config-lvm.py", line 138, in ?
  File "/usr/share/system-config-lvm/system-config-lvm.py", line 123, in runFullGUI

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

system-config-lvm 1.0.13-1.0

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Invoke system-config-lvm (CLI or GUI)
Actual results:

The system-config-lvm window pops up for a few milliseconds and then closes with
the above messages in the console (when invoked using CLI)

Expected results:

The system-config-lvm window shouldn't close

Additional info:

This bug seems closely related to bug #169860. I'm opening this one because the
platform is different (ia64) and because bug #169860 seems to have been solved,
which isn't the case here

Comment 1 Stanko Kupcevic 2006-05-11 21:29:38 UTC
Could you post the output of 'sfdisk -l -uS <devname>' for all hard drives.

Comment 2 Émeric Maschino 2006-05-12 06:33:10 UTC
Unfortunately, sfdisk doesn't support GPT partitions, the standard on Itanium
systems (see below the sfdisk output for disk /dev/sda). Is there something else
I can try?

WARNING: GPT (GUID Partition Table) detected on '/dev/sda'! The util sfdisk
doesn't support GPT. Use GNU Parted.

Created attachment 128947 [details]
Parted changed format of output - fix

Well, you could test a fix. 

Just drop the attachment into /usr/share/system-config-lvm/ , and it should fix
the problem.

Comment 4 Émeric Maschino 2006-05-12 21:08:39 UTC
Wow, impressive! I confirm that attachment id #128947 solves the problem. Many

Comment 5 Stanko Kupcevic 2006-05-12 21:25:05 UTC
Fixed in 1.0.17

Thanks for beta-testing :)
