I have been unable to reproduce this error. It looks like cryptsetup crashed
while trying to create the LUKS mapping for the PV. Does this still happen for
you with current rawhide trees?
Comment 3 Jesse Keating 2008-03-18 11:48:53 EDT
I am seeing this with today's rawhide (20080318).  My setup is slightly
different in that I'm doing encryption of an LVM PV which is on top of an mdraid
0.  My dump looks similar and I'll attach it.  Can be split into it's own bug if
this is something different than the original posters, but the errors look
generic enough.

Anaconda dump

Dump from my install attempt.
Comment 5 Jesse Keating 2008-04-01 17:44:29 EDT
Hrm, I can't see this anymore, and I think we fixed some stuff on the backend
around this.  Closing as rawhide for now, will re-open if seen again.
