Comment 2 Tomasz Torcz 2009-04-28 15:00:19 UTC
What I did:
I started with both drives empty, only with MSDOS partition table.
I selected automatic layout and opted to modify.
I removed VGs.
I changed PV on second drive into 8GB partition, mount on /, type btrfs, selected sda and sdb as allowable drives and 8192MB as fixed size.
Then I edited PV on first drive with exact sam information (/, btrfs, both drives, 8192 fixed). 
At this point I got exception.

What was expected:
I expected to have / with btrfs filesystem spanning over sda2 and sdb1. I also expected question if I want RAID0 or RAID1 withing btrfs over those partitions.

Comment 3 David Lehman 2009-04-28 17:02:59 UTC
Thanks for the report.

None of what you expected is going to work. We only support the creation of btrfs filesystems on a single block device, just like all other filesystems.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.

Still seeing this issue in latest rawhide with anaconda 12.26.

RedHat, Any updates on this?

Comment 14 David Lehman 2009-09-25 14:50:56 UTC
Can you please provide a detailed description of the process to reproduce this behavior?

Comment 15 Robert Townley 2009-09-30 14:17:35 UTC
I have had several instances of Bug 502092.

Installing to a fresh machine but simply wanted to increase the size of /boot from 200MB to 1000.  This fails saying there is not enough free space, but instead of allowing me to reduce the other partition/vg, it crashes.

HP DL 380 G4 with 2 300GB hot plug SCA scsi drives in a mirror.

One of the way to reproduce this bug,
Steps:
1. Start f12 rawhide installation with vnc
2. Select "Use entire drive" in partitioning. This option should not leave any
free space on the disk.
* Also check for review and modify partitioning layout
* Pressing next should be able to partition information.
3. Select one the partition and press 'Edit'
4. Increase the size of the partition and press OK.
* This should give an error of saying " not enough free space on disk". Which
is expected.
5. Now click on 'OK' for the error. This will crash the anaconda.

Listing as beta blocker, pretty annoying bug.

Comment 19 Alexey Torkhov 2009-10-09 16:45:36 UTC
I'm getting sometimes this error when editing (and saving as is) partition when disk is full (tracebacks are in bug# 519212).

Comment 20 James Laska 2009-10-09 20:31:54 UTC
Unable to reproduce the problem when testing anaconda-12.35 + http://dlehman.fedorapeople.org/updates-498026.img.

Comment 21 David Lehman 2009-10-09 22:20:40 UTC
Fixed in anaconda-12.36-1.

Comment 22 Jesse Keating 2009-10-12 22:44:05 UTC
That anaconda has been tagged.

Tested with F12 rawhide having anaconda 12.39. I confirm that the issue is fixed now.

Thanks

Comment 24 James Laska 2009-10-27 14:41:39 UTC
Thanks for the feedback Pavan!

Comment 25 James Laska 2009-10-28 20:32:57 UTC
anaconda-12.39-1 failure (see anacdump.txt in attachment#366492 [details])

1) First, do this - https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/QA/TestCases/PartitioningExt4OnNativeDevice
2) After that install, do this - https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/QA:Testcase_Anaconda_autopart_%28shrink%29_install
3) There will be 2 'PPCPReP Boot' Partitions, I clicked "EDIT" on the original partition and chose to format it again.  Click OK

Crash.

Well, either re-open this bug or file a new one? New comments on closed bugs have a tendency to get lost in the shuffle...
