Description info@kobaltwit.be 2011-02-25 17:10:22 UTC
Description of problem:
One of my PC's has two harddrives configured in a RAID 1 configuration (softraid). On of the RAID devices (md1) hosts an LVM physical volume. When I try to install F15 (pre-alpha), it doesn't recognize this setup.
It does recognize the RAID1 devices, but it fails to detect the LVM setup that it hosts. This means I can't install F15 next to my existing F14 in an separate LVM partition. Let me know what additional information you would need for this issue.

Comment 1 Chris Lumens 2011-02-25 17:38:30 UTC
/tmp/anaconda.log, /tmp/storage.log, and /tmp/syslog from when you hit the problem would be handy.  Thanks.

Comment 5 info@kobaltwit.be 2011-02-25 18:00:20 UTC
For completeness: /dev/md1 is the RAID1 partition holding the LVM PV, /dev/md7 is a separate /boot partition.

Comment 6 David Lehman 2011-02-28 17:35:29 UTC
This should be the same issue as bug 676519, which was fixed in anaconda-15.21-1 on rawhide. Setting this bug to block F15Beta instead of that one since this one is against F15.

  http://dlehman.fedorapeople.org/updates-fwraid-f15.3.img

Fixes this for me when used with 15.20.1

Thanks.

(PS, adding /sbin to PATH?  Doesn't affect install, only us bit twiddlers.)

Comment 8 David Lehman 2011-03-09 19:07:33 UTC
Fixed for Fedora 15 in anaconda-15.22-1.

Comment 9 James Laska 2011-03-11 19:40:35 UTC
Discussed at 2011-03-11 blocker review meeting.  This issue is fixed and available for testing in anaconda-15.22-1.  The issue has been accepted as a beta blocker.

Comment 10 info@kobaltwit.be 2011-03-17 17:37:20 UTC
I'd love to verify this, but I'm currently blocked by Bug 688682.

Comment 11 James Laska 2011-03-25 15:34:59 UTC
I'm not seeing this using anaconda-15.24-1 (installation images available from http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/fedora/linux/development/15/).  The test blocker you mentioned is now resolved in the latest pygobject2 which should also be included.

I tested doing an install with LVM on top of RAID devices.  After the install completed, I started the installer again, and it recognized the existing RAID and LVM devices.  I'll move this to VERIFIED once we have confirmation from the reporter (info@kobaltwit.be).

Comment 12 info@kobaltwit.be 2011-03-25 17:10:29 UTC
I tried again today with a boot.iso from yesterday evening, but I still can't go into custom partitioning. Got a backtrace that already was in bugzilla under bug 684283, but that bug is marked as a duplicate of bug 682543. James reports (just today that bug 682543 should be fixed now. I'm not sure where I should get a more recent boot.iso with this fix to test again.

If its still there try:

Comment 14 info@kobaltwit.be 2011-03-26 11:42:14 UTC
I used http://jlaska.fedorapeople.org/boot.iso to test again and with this image my LVM RAID setup is detected properly. I can add an LVM partition just fine now, so as far as I'm concerned you can close this bug.

Thank your for fixing this.
