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.

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.
