Description James Morris 2006-07-31 12:58:42 EDT
Description of problem:

Anaconda text installation of a xen guest (via xenguest-install.py) fails with
"lvcreate failed for LogVol00"

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

anaconda is whatever is currently in gromit

Additional info:
- DNS seems to be flaky, too.  Had to specify install location as an IP address,
and it couldn't start vnc because it couldn't determine the address for localhost.

See attachement.

The LVM tools are segfaulting in matchpathcon_init when SELinux is enabled --
selinux=0 works around, but obviously that's not a good long-term solution.  

Unfortunately, really being able to debug this sanely means getting a guest
installed and then we hit but 200127

Okay, not lvm2's fault. 

In libselinux, there's a __thread variable.  When we reference it, lvm.static
segfaults.  Easy reproducer is to install kernel-xen on an x86 box, boot into
it, run '/sbin/lvm.mkstatic vgmknodes'

Which starts to make me think this is something in the TLS fixup code in xen,
but not sure yet.
Comment 5 Jeremy Katz 2006-08-01 15:35:11 EDT
This should be fixed with new libselinux + lvm2
Comment 6 James Morris 2006-09-18 22:21:02 EDT
works fine now
