Description of problem:
When searching for storage devices during a live USB install, an error window pops up complaining that an error has occurred while processing drive /dev/dm-0.
After clicking "Ignore drive" for /dev/dm-0 and likewise for the subsequent
error message for /dev/dm-1, the install proceeds as expected.
Clicking "Re-initialize drive" will keep the installer stuck in this step.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot system from USB-based live media.
2. Lauch /usr/bin/liveinst.
3. Proceed to storage step.
Installer reports error processing drive: /dev/dm-0.
Installer launches partitioning tool.
- It is trying to "initalize" the USB device.
- If you ignore the error and get to the partitioning step, you will see the USB device (wrongly) listed as an install target
- gparted fails to lauch from the live-USB, so this may be related
- the partitioning tool occasionally mis-identifies swap space as an EXT3 or EXT4 filesystem
Can you please attach the log files (found under /tmp), from an installation where this happens ?

Attached available log files from an isntallation completed by clicking "Ignore drive" which seems to be referring to the Live USB stick. Thanks.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 12 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 12. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '12'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 12's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 12 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 12 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2010-12-02. Fedora 12 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
