Description of problem:

Installer hangs after adding a certain number of partitions

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
 * anaconda-13.32

How reproducible:
 * 4 out of 4 attempts in virt

Steps to Reproduce:

    Disk layout:
     * vda - 10G
     * vdb - 2G
     * vdc - 512M
     * vdd - 512M

    1. Create /boot on vda (size: default)
    2. Create LVM PV on vdc (size: fill disk)
    3. Create LVM PV on vdd (size: fill disk)
    4. Create LVM PV on vdb (size: fill disk)
    5. Create Logical volume group
     * swap - 512M
     * / - remaining space in vg
    6. Create a RAID device on vda (size: 2048)
    7. Create a RAID device on vda (size: 2048)
    8. Create a RAID device on vda (size: 2048)

Actual results:

The UI hangs and it seems after selecting 'OK' in last step above.

Expected results:

I should be able to add the device

Additional info:

 * I've seen this before while adding lots of LVM PV's.  Perhaps an implicit maximum # of partitions somewhere?

Comment 1 Hans de Goede 2010-03-01 21:52:42 UTC
We've an issue in pyparted which gets triggered by creating a lot, with a lot varying between 3-5 partitions.

This issue has been pinpointed and a fix is on its way, marking this as a duplicate of the bug tracking the pyparted feature in Fedora.
