Description of problem:
Anaconda fails installing rawhide when a certain partitioning scheme is already on the harddisks
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
I start with a system that has the following partitioning on the disks:
Device Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 1 130 1044193+ 83 Linux
/dev/sdb1 1 24792 199141708+ 8e Linux LVM
I do a installation booting with pxe and boot parameters "text nomodeset".
After formatting is complete the following error occurs:
An error occurered mounting device /dev/sda1 as /boot: mount failed: (2, None). This is a fatal error and the install cannot continue.
On tty2 I can see that anaconda has altered the partitioning scheme.
In attach a screen print from tty3.
*** Bug 497189 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
With anaconda-126.96.36.199 I still get this error, but after every installation run anaconda adds an extra boot partition on drive /dev/sda although I asked to "replace existing linux system".
When I wipe out the LVM partition on /dev/sdb this error does not occure.
We had a variety of (2, None) related bugs during this release cycle but I believe they are all solved by now. Thanks for the bug report.
