Comment 3 Ales Kozumplik 2010-06-16 12:04:18 UTC
1) installed rhel6 on an ext4 partition (that is no LVM)
2) run the installer again, chose fresh install
3) chose 'shrink existing partitions', chose to shrink the original root partition
4) chose 'review and modify...'
5) on the partitioning screen went berzerk deleting every volume possible
6) saw the traceback
7) became a sad panda

Comment 6 Alexander Todorov 2010-07-05 09:46:55 UTC
Tested with snapshot #7. 

1) Created a  system with /boot, swap and / on ext4
2) On the second install first selected to shrink the current system and review the partitioning layout.
3) Anaconda was able to shrink the root partition and create LVM layout in the available space (there was plenty of space available). 
4) Deleted all partitions and logical volumes one by one - No traceback.
5) Manually created customized LVM configuration (with some free space in the VG).

Install completed and there was no traceback at all. Moving to VERIFIED.
