Preview - install to existing LVM fail when partition ID not "Linux LVM"
Last modified: 2008-06-02 14:46:29 EDT
Description of problem:fresh install using custom layout and existing LVM
partitions. Complains not enough space when attempting to assign root partition.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): Fedora 9 Preview
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Three LVM partitions created using command line tools in Fedora 8 and
formatted to ext3
2. Install from DVD; choose Custom Layout
3. Space reported as 541% and used as minus 492%
4. LVM partitions recognized and attempted to assign root; complain not enough
Went to Fedora 8 and changed partition ID from Linux to "Linux LVM" using fdisk
Second attempt to install went fine. Space/use number and percentages looked
correct. Assigned root and other partitions and install went to completion.
Given the presence of a relatively straight-forward workaround, I think we'll
punt this to F10
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
