Error mounting device VolGroup00/LogVol00 as /: mount failed
Last modified: 2013-09-02 02:25:41 EDT
Description of problem:
Attempting to install from
VNC shows the following failure while activating the default recommended
partition scheme: http://jlaska.fedorapeople.org/error.png
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot installer on previously installed rawhide system
2. Activate VNC when prompted
3. Proceed to partitioning
4. Accept defaults, click OK, and activate partitions
* This system had 2 luks encrypted block devices from a previous install --
when prompted, I provided the correct passphrase to unlock
* On the serial console for this system I attempt to mount
/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 manually ...
sh-3.2# mount /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 /mnt/sysimage
mount: /mnt/sysimage does not contain SELinux labels.
You just mounted an file system that supports labels which does not
contain labels, onto an SELinux box. It is likely that confined
applications will generate AVC messages and not be allowed access to
this file system. You can add labels to this file system by executing
restorecon(8). If you do not want to add labels to this file system,
you should mount the file system using one of the "context" mount

I'm seeing this as well on i386, and ppc.
Note that the mount message is *not*, technically, a failure - it still gets
mounted and mount seems to return 0.
I suspect that esandeen's patch:
which changed the mke2fs incantation:
- self.extraFormatArgs = [ "-j" ]
+ self.extraFormatArgs = [ "-t ext3" ]
might be wrong; I think that might need to be
+ self.extraFormatArgs = [ "-t", "ext3" ]
I'm testing that theory with an updates.img right now.
wwoods, yeah, that was my error.
Urk, sorry. I should stay away from python.
Committed and pushed, will rebuild anaconda soon.
Seems fixed in anaconda 220.127.116.11. Jim, can you retest and confirm?
Will queue this up once a ppc tree is available for testing
includes anaconda version 18.104.22.168
