Description Andreas Thienemann 2009-04-02 10:37:47 UTC
Description of problem:
When doing a default installation of current rawhide on a system without any raid, anaconda fails when creating the lv for the swap partition:

Running... ['lvm', 'lvcreate', '-L', '1952m', '-n', 'lv_swap', '--config', ' devices { filter=["r|fd0|"] } ', 'vg_erika']
  Insufficient free extents (487) in volume group vg_erika: 488 required

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
anaconda-11.5.0.38-1.x86_64.rpm

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install rawhide via network
2. Click through to the partitioning screen
3. Select defaults, klick next.
  
anaconda.log and program.log are attached.

Comment 6 Andreas Thienemann 2009-04-02 11:01:46 UTC
regarding the fdisk output, a bit of clarification might be useful:

[query(hansg)] So your wiping the disk? Iow selecting automatic partitioning use entire disk, or ?
[query(ixs)] nope
[query(ixs)] default partitioning says replace existing linux partitions.
[query(ixs)] as there's no existing linux, it simply uses the freespace and leaves the ntfs partitions alone.
[query(hansg)] Ok, so there are pre-existing ntfs partitions, but I see you included fdisk -l output already, so that should be clear from the bug
[12:54] [query(ixs)] yes. the two linux partitions were created in the empty space at the end of the disk. fdisk as well as {vg,pv}display were taken after the crash.

Comment 12 Bob Cochran 2009-04-07 22:23:01 UTC
Are there any workarounds for this bug and/or 493523 which was closed as a duplicate of this bug? I don't think I can install the beta without a fix for this. Is the recent announcement that some beta iso's have been reissued related to either of these? Thanks, Bob

Comment 13 Andreas Thienemann 2009-04-07 23:55:12 UTC
A simple workaround is to select the "Review partition layout" and then reduce the size of the offending partition (should be the last logical volume) a bit.

Usually the extend size is 4MB, so if say your swap partition is planned to be 1024MB, simply change the size to 1020MB and you should be good.

Comment 14 Bob Cochran 2009-04-09 20:15:59 UTC
The workaround in Comment #13 worked for me. Thanks!

Comment 17 Andreas Thienemann 2009-04-14 14:00:26 UTC
Following a hunch from dlehman:

This error only manifests when selecting encryption.
Running unencrypted, the partitioning suceeds.
