Description Owen Taylor 2009-03-12 08:42:43 EDT
I have a system where the existing partitioning looks something like:

 LogVol00: /
 LogVol01: /home

 VolGroup00: md0

 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.

Comment 3 David Lehman 2009-03-13 11:11:32 EDT
Right -- the new build of anaconda ( didn't get pulled into rawhide.
Comment 4 Chris Lumens 2009-03-17 10:49:44 EDT
This should be fixed as of today's rawhide, which contains anaconda-
Comment 5 Owen Taylor 2009-03-17 19:15:20 EDT
Behavior with anaonda- 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 bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.
