Description of problem:

New installation of Fedora on notebook, on disc is already some old version of Fedora rawhide with encrypted PV.

I want to create unencrypted system now (delete everything and create default layout).

So selecting "Remove all partition on selected drives and create default layout"
and not checking "Encrypt system"

=> it still creates old, encrypted PV layout now.

When I hit "reset" in modify partition dialog, it resets to only partition, no LV defined.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Rawhide, anaconda says version

How reproducible:
Install encrypted system, run installation again and try to use default layout without encryption.

Expected results:
All partition/encryption info is removed, anaconda set default layout.

Is it prompting you for a passphrase? Before the install/upgrade choice or after partitioning type screen? What if you just hit "Cancel" in the passphrase prompt?
Comment 2 Milan Broz 2008-09-10 03:09:03 EDT
No it doesn't promt for passhrase before the install.

But the anaconda in rawhide is broken currently - I later noticed it skips the whole network dialog before partitioning and in the end it fails with unknown "overrideDHCPhostname"...

So maybe this is just some side effect. I will try again when network in rawhide anaconda is fixed:-) (f10-alpha net install from rawhide repo seems to work).

Have you tried this recently?
Comment 4 Milan Broz 2008-10-06 07:25:07 EDT
Seems that it works in version included in F10-beta, at least in simpl econfig I used.
It asks for password if it found a previous encrypted volume and allows reset of configuration to default.
