Description David Lehman 2011-03-09 18:28:30 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #681597 +++

Description of problem:
An attempt to resize existing logical volume during installation can corrupt filesystem on it. See steps to reproduce, logs from the installation will be attached.

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

How reproducible:
probably always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install with default LVM partitioning
2. start new installation in graphical mode
3. use custom partitioning
4. edit and resize existing logical volume holding / from previous install
   new size: 2000 MB
   mount point: /mnt/resized
5. create logical volume for new root filesystem
6. reuse /boot and swap partitions from previous installation
7. continue with the installation

Actual results:
error message:

Unable to mount filesystem
An error occurred mounting device /dev/mapper/vg_rtt7-lv_root as /mnt/resized: mount failed: (9, None). This is a fatal error and the install cannot continue.

Press <Enter> to exit the installer.

Expected results:
resized logical volume is mounted after resizing, installer continues with package selection.
