Anaconda crash dump
Description of problem:
Anaconda crashed during partition editing when I attempted to delete an LVM partition.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select option to customize partition layout
2. Delete the volume group containing the root and swap partitions.
3. Attempt to delete the LVM physical partition.
Anaconda crashed, creating the attached dump.
I saw some other anaconda partitioning bug reports, but could not find one that matched.
The automatic partitioning started from the option to use free-space, with 2 small existing partitions containing Dell Utilities and DOS, resulting in /boot being the 3rd primary partition, with one logical partition used for LVM.
I had also tried to set the "force to be a primary partition" flag for the LVM physical partition. That failed, claiming insufficient space. This installation is to a 750G disk. Perhaps DOS partitions cannot create primary partitions that big? Maybe this bug is related to partitioning large disks.
