Description steve roush 2008-05-07 23:16:54 EDT
Description of problem:
livecd-creator crashes if /etc/lvm/ directory does not exist.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Empty /etc/lvm/cache, /etc/lvm/backup, or /etc/lvm/archive directory (no
sub-files or sub-directories)
2. start livecd-creator
Actual results:
livecd-creator will crash

Expected results:
successful livecd run

Additional info:
I added 1 line after line 600 of livecd-creator and that seems to work (I am not
a python programmer, so it might need improving):
        for subdir in ("cache", "backup", "archive"):    ## line 600
            if os.path.isdir("%s/install_root/etc/lvm/" + subdir):   ## I added

This is fixed in Fedora 9's version of the tools which probably work on Fedora
8.  But the latter needs more testing
