Description Alexandre Oliva 2006-05-27 14:02:18 EDT
Description of problem:
I tried a kickstart install of rawhide yesterday, and it failed miserably.  VT3
had warnings about unsupported logvol directives, that FC5 and before accepted
just fine, so we seem to have some kind of regression here.

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

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Try a kickstart install with a kickstart file containing logvol directives
Actual results:
Anaconda says it is ignoring them, and eventually aborts the install

Expected results:
Successful install

Works fine for me on anaconda-  Perhaps you just picked a day where
anaconda and pykickstart were out of sync to install.
Comment 2 Alexandre Oliva 2006-08-04 12:22:51 EDT
If it worked fine then, it was broken again :-(

Here's my logvol entries.  Anaconda still prints the warning that it does not
recognize the directive, and then it complains that I didn't define a root
device.  This is a non-interactive kickstart install, if it makes any difference.

clearpart --none
volgroup all --noformat
logvol / --useexisting --fstype ext3 --name=test --vgname=all --fsoptions="noati
logvol swap --useexisting --fstype swap --name=swap --vgname=all
part swap --onpart hda2
logvol /l --noformat --fstype ext3 --name=l --vgname=all --fsoptions="noatime"
raid /boot --useexisting --fstype ext3 --device=md6 --fsoptions="noatime"
raid /l/root/boot --noformat --fstype ext3 --device=md5 --fsoptions="noatime"
logvol /l/root --noformat --fstype ext3 --name=stable --vgname=all --fsoptions="
Comment 3 Chris Lumens 2006-08-07 15:39:41 EDT
The message about not being supported is just sloppy error handling covering up
the real cause.  Fixed in Rawhide.
