Can't install onto existing lvm-on-mdraid
Last modified: 2009-06-25 11:41:55 EDT
I have a system where the existing partitioning looks something like:
md0: /dev/sda5 /dev/sdb5 (raid1)
I wanted to install over the system on LogVol00, preserving the data on LogVo01, so I ran the current (March 12) anaconda from a network install.
I chose "custom layout", and when I get to the partioning screen, I see the md device, but the lvm volumes are not visible. "Edit" on the md device show "Original File System Type: Unknown" (probably unrelated - it oddly shows number of spares: -2)
Switching to a terminal and using 'lvm pvs' 'lvm lvs' I see the physical and logical volumes.
This is known and is related to udev rules. A fix went into git last night, so it should appear in rawhide on Friday. Please reopen this bug if the issue is not resolved in Friday's rawhide. Thanks for filing a report.
Behavior with the boot.iso with the date of '13-Mar-2009 05:37' is exactly the same as previously.
Right -- the new build of anaconda (22.214.171.124-1) didn't get pulled into rawhide.
This should be fixed as of today's rawhide, which contains anaconda-126.96.36.199.
Behavior with anaonda-188.8.131.52 is similar.
One noted difference is that switching to a vt, 'lvm pvs' and 'lvm lvs' show nothing. (md0 doesn't seem to have been started)
This should be fixed in today's rawhide (anaconda-184.108.40.206-1).
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.
