Description Martin Banas 2009-10-01 12:44:57 UTC
Description of problem:
Trying to change encryption status of partition ends with error message: The mount point "" is in use. Please pick another.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
rawhide-20090930
anaconda 12.32

How reproducible:
always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. start the installation of latest rawhide
2. proceed to partitioning dialog and select "Create custom layout"
3. Create new partition with mount point (for example /, /boot, /home).
4. Edit the partition - select "Encrypt" and click OK.
5. Edit the partition again - deselect "Encrypt" and click OK.
  
Actual results:
Error message displayed:

Mount point in use

The mount point "/home" is in use. Please pick another.

Expected results:
There should be no such message.

Additional info:
Happens only when "Encrypt" field is selected/deselected. "Force to be a primary partition" and other are not affected by this behaviour.

The workaround for now seems to be either ...
 1) remove the partition, and create a new one to match the parameters you need.   
 2) Or, supply a temporary mount point (aka '/opt/foo'), click OK, then reedit that partition supplying the original mount point

Adding to F12Blocker so this doesn't fall off the radar.

Comment 3 David Lehman 2009-10-09 19:19:24 UTC
Will be fixed in anaconda-12.36-1.

Comment 4 James Laska 2009-10-09 20:33:07 UTC
Tested fix as an updates.img on top of anaconda-12.35-1 (http://dlehman.fedorapeople.org/updates-jlaska.img).  Was unable to reproduce the reported problem.  Will retest with anaconda-12.26.

Comment 5 James Laska 2009-10-22 20:39:17 UTC
Tested and confirmed in anaconda-12.37
