Description Mathieu Baudier 2010-05-01 07:02:28 UTC
Description of problem:

After doing a custom partitioning in order to install RHEL 6 beta on an existing volume group, anaconda crashes when formatting a new logical volume (lv_rhel in vg_alma_safe)

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

RHEL 6 Beta 20100414

How reproducible:

I guess this would always happen again but I am not extremely keen to try and try again if there are issues at LVM level, because I have quite a lot of data on this development computer that would be painful to lose.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. with the settings described in bug #585839
2. perform a custom partitioning with an ext3 /boot partition on a primary partition of one of the disks and a / partition on a new logical volume (lv_rhel) on a software RAID5 based volume group (vg_alma_safe)  
Actual results:

Installation crashes

Expected results:

Installation should proceed

Additional info:

Anaconda dump generated by the installer attached
