Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 250409
When an existing LV with dash (hyphen) in name is selected for use, installation ends with traceback
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:12 EST
Description of problem:
I have a system where LVs have dashes in their names. I've created (using
lvcreate new LV root-f7-64). The installation failed with traceback with error
No such file or directory: '/dev/mapper/vg0-root-fc7-64'
Anaconda should douple the dashes and use path /dev/mapper/vg0-root--f7--64.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have a preexisting LV with name that contains dash.
2. Try to install Fedora and place the root partition on that LV.
No traceback, installation running alright.
Anaconda allowed me to select that LV and did not complain that its name would
be unusable. Now, I know that I cannot create new LV with dash in anaconda. But
that restriction should probably be removed and proper handling of dashed LVs added.
