Description Marcela Mašláňová 2008-04-01 08:59:29 EDT
Description of problem:
The encryption freeze the installation.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
anaconda last F-9beta?

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. encrypt disk
2. type password, click ok
3. look on the frozen window
Actual results:
Anaconda freeze. After second try the disk want password because it "is"
encrypted. The password works and on the other try was installation successful
with encryption.

Expected results:
Encrypt disk on the first time without freeze.

I haven't been able to duplicate this behavior in my testing.

Sometimes it takes several minutes to for disk encryption operations to
complete. This is not indicated anywhere in the user interface. Perhaps it was
just not done  yet, and it seemed as though anaconda had frozen?

Has this happened on more than one occasion? Can you perhaps provide more detail
about what you did, and also the symptoms of the perceived freeze?
Comment 2 Marcela Mašláňová 2008-04-04 04:23:40 EDT
After I type password and click OK, then nothing was happening for a quite long
time. The window with password should disappear and there should be something
like 'Encryption could take long time'. 
The second encryption was really fast and window for password disappear

It happened only once and I'm not planning new installation.
