RHEL Engineering is moving the tracking of its product development work on RHEL 6 through RHEL 9 to Red Hat Jira (issues.redhat.com). If you're a Red Hat customer, please continue to file support cases via the Red Hat customer portal. If you're not, please head to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira and file new tickets here. Individual Bugzilla bugs in the statuses "NEW", "ASSIGNED", and "POST" are being migrated throughout September 2023. Bugs of Red Hat partners with an assigned Engineering Partner Manager (EPM) are migrated in late September as per pre-agreed dates. Bugs against components "kernel", "kernel-rt", and "kpatch" are only migrated if still in "NEW" or "ASSIGNED". If you cannot log in to RH Jira, please consult article #7032570. That failing, please send an e-mail to the RH Jira admins at rh-issues@redhat.com to troubleshoot your issue as a user management inquiry. The email creates a ServiceNow ticket with Red Hat. Individual Bugzilla bugs that are migrated will be moved to status "CLOSED", resolution "MIGRATED", and set with "MigratedToJIRA" in "Keywords". The link to the successor Jira issue will be found under "Links", have a little "two-footprint" icon next to it, and direct you to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira (issue links are of type "https://issues.redhat.com/browse/RHEL-XXXX", where "X" is a digit). This same link will be available in a blue banner at the top of the page informing you that that bug has been migrated.

Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
.Anaconda no longer fails after entering a passphrase for encrypted devices Previously, if `kdump` was disabled when preparing an installation, and the user selected encrypted disk partitioning, the Anaconda installer failed with a traceback after entering a passphrase for the encrypted device. This update fixes the problem, and users no longer need to enable `kdump` to create encrypted disk partitioning.

Description of problem:

RHEL 8.6 anaconda installer crashes

TypeError: Argument 1 does not allow None as a value

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

- Anaconda

How reproducible:

- Always.

Steps to Reproduce:

1. Launch the RHEL 8.6 installer
2. Disable kdump
3. Go to partitioning and (a) choose custom, (b) click the "encryption" checkbox, (c) auto-create an LVM partitioning scheme, then crash when you go to accept changes after entering password.


Disable the Kdump in last.

Comment 1 Jan Stodola 2022-05-16 07:59:14 UTC
This is a regression comparing to RHEL-8.5. I'm not able to reproduce the same problem on RHEL-9.0
It's also possible to reproduce it when using automatic partitioning with encryption, it's not necessary to enter the custom partitioning spoke.

A workaround is to define the partitioning first and then disable kdump.

Comment 5 Jiri Konecny 2022-05-16 11:08:30 UTC
Based on the comment 3 switching to kdump addon. Thanks Vendy for looking on that.
