Dump generated by the installer after crashing

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

Could not reproduce this with the 20100428 nightly DVD.

Comment 7 Alexander Todorov 2010-05-13 12:02:30 UTC
With RHEL6.0-20100511.3:

I've installed using the steps to reproduce from comment #0 (virtual system, 4 disks, same partitioning but with smaller disk sizes) and install completed successfully. Wrt comment #4 I'll close this.

Comment 8 Mathieu Baudier 2010-07-03 11:06:02 UTC
I confirm that I could install RHEL 6 Beta 2 without problem on this hardware settings (writing this from the freshly installed system).

Thanks for your efforts.
