Failure to create encrypted Ext3 partitions
Last modified: 2009-07-20 09:12:36 EDT
Description of problem:
Trying to create an encrypted Ext3 partition for /home crashed Anaconda on an Intel Macbook.
The traceback complains about a missing 'mapName' in Ext3FS object.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Version shipped with Fedora 11 x86_64 DVD. Similar problem in the Fedora 11 PR x86_64 DVD.

I did a clean instalation of F11, but didn't see the error.
1) Use entire drive
2) I modified the /boot to be only 100Mb big
3) I created encrypted ext3 /home with 100MB of space
I ignored the warning about the size (It just a test right..)
F11 base packages installed successfully. Is there anything else I should know about the environment? Old instalations, multiple drives.. anything special at all?
This is a Apple Macbook, which had Fedora 9 x68_64 on it. A fresh new installation of Fedora 11 x86_64 was being attempted with "create custom layout" (to dual boot with MacOS X) and the following layout:
Model: ATA Hitachi HTS54168 (scsi)
Disk /dev/sda: 80.0GB
Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/512B
Partition Table: gpt
Number Start End Size File system Name Flags
1 20.5kB 210MB 210MB fat32 EFI System Partition boot
2 210MB 21.6GB 21.3GB hfs+ Apple_HFS_Untitled_1
3 21.6GB 21.7GB 101MB ext2
4 21.7GB 51.7GB 30.1GB
5 51.7GB 68.2GB 16.5GB ext3
6 68.2GB 79.0GB 10.7GB ext3
7 79.0GB 80.0GB 1074MB linux-swap
The partition with the encrypted filesystem is /dev/sda4.
Can you attach the /tmp/anaconda.log and /tmp/program.log files from the broken instalation? Or if you are able to reproduce the crash, use anaconda's save-to-bugzilla or scp feature to give us more information.
And could describe the exact steps you did to reproduce the crash please?
It is hard to debug a failure without information.
