Description Patrice Guay 2010-07-13 12:05:16 EDT
The device-mapper-multipath package is a requirement for the /usr/bin/liveinst program shipped by anaconda

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
anaconda 13.21.50-9.el6

How reproducible: always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot on a RHEL6 LiveCD
2. /usr/bin/liveinst
Actual results:
anaconda 13.21.50 exception report
Traceback (most recent call first):
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/iutil.py", line 236, in execWithCapture
    raise RuntimeError, "Error running " + command + ": " + e.strerror
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/storage/devicelibs/mpath.py", line 80, in identifyMult
    topology = parseMultipathOutput(iutil.execWithCapture("multipath", ["-d",]))
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/iw/filter_gui.py", line 570, in getScreen
    (singlepaths, mpaths, partitions) = identifyMultipaths(disks)
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/gui.py", line 1415, in setScreen
    new_screen = self.currentWindow.getScreen(anaconda)
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/gui.py", line 1336, in nextClicked
    self.setScreen ()
RuntimeError: Error running multipath: No such file or directory

By installing the device-mapper-multipath package, this error is avoided.
Comment 2 Chris Lumens 2010-07-13 12:57:05 EDT
anaconda cannot simply require device-mapper-multipath, because not all composes of RHEL6 contain that package.  Placing a hard requirement on it would therefore break tree composition and likely anaconda builds.
