Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 491132
installation of guest fails with encryption
Last modified: 2009-03-25 08:08:27 EDT
Description of problem:
When i try to install a guest to a encrypted partition or when i try to install a guest and have its partitions encrypted, the installation hangs.
I also tried without encryption and that works.
I am using an external usb disk.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
install a kvm/x86_64 fedora 11 guest on a logical volume on a luks encrypted pv.
also occurs when you install using encrypted partitions in the guest only
if installed without using encryption at all it finishes the installation. (except that it hangs when it installs the boot loader but that is unrelated)
If installing to encrypted partitions within the guest doesn't work, that sounds like an anaconda bug ... moving there.
Can you boot the guest with e.g. "console=ttS0 vnc" on the kernel command line and copy ~/anaconda.log from the guest?
Also, if you could try installing the guest with today's rawhide that would be helpful. There has been a lot of fixes going into anaconda's storage code in the past week
To be honest i doubt this is the case: issue also occurs when installing to an enrypted partition (not within the installation).
Im closing this for now and will report again if and when i can give more details.
