Live Installer fails on softraid and LVM
Last modified: 2013-01-09 23:55:01 EST
Description of problem:
I used the Live CD and test the "Install on harddisk", I take the custom harddisk Layout, and couldn't edit filesystems which are located on an LVM. The physical volumes were on a softraid /dev/md0. The Install doesn't found out that den softraid holds a pv. So editing in LVM fails with "no pv".
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Try to install from the Live CD to a LVM which physical volumes were on /dev/md0. The matter is that the partitioning tool doesn't found, that the softraid is a pv, so it doesn't allow do edit anything in LVM.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start the Installer from the Live CD
2. request "custom layout"
3. try to edit LVM
Error message that no physical volume was found.
the edit LVM dialog
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
We have made extensive changes to the partitioning code for F11 beta, such that it is very difficult to tell whether your bug is still relevant or not. Please test with either the latest rawhide you have access to or F11 and let us know whether you are still seeing this problem. Thanks for the bug report.
The problem still exists in Fedora 11 Live CD.
The raids aren't started at boot, so the LVM isn't recognized. Installer does find the raid, but not the LVM.
After manually starting the softraid with palmpinset, anaconda sees it and recognizes the LVM it contains, but when changes have to be written to disk, the raid and LVM seem to be halted of some kind, resulting in a installer crash (lvm commands don't work anymore).
Can you attach a traceback of how it crashes? Also, does it work if you use the non-live install method?
