Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 461594
Create default disk layout still uses old encrypted layout from disc
Last modified: 2013-02-28 23:06:51 EST
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 126.96.36.199
Install encrypted system, run installation again and try to use default layout without encryption.
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?
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?
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.
