Description of problem:
Editing the trailing free space of the second disk of a 2-disked system into an
LVM Physical Volume crashed anaconda, whereas doing so in the first disk worked.

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

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Tell disk druid to preserve partitions.
2.Remove the last existing partition in each of the disks
3.Edit the free space in the first disk into an LVM PV
4.Try to do the same to the free space in the second disk

Actual Results:  3 succeeds, but 4 crashes anaconda when you click `ok' in the
partition edit window.

Expected Results:  3 and 4 should work just the same.

Additional info:

I'm trying to duplicate this with anaconda --test --method=nfs:/, but anaconda
bails out saying XF86Config doesn't take any arguments.

Comment 1 Michael Fulbright 2002-08-22 15:52:16 UTC
cd into /usr/lib/anaconda and type

PYTHONPATH=. /usr/sbin/anaconda --method=nfs:// --test

that should do it.

I have a two drive system and I don't see this issue, fwiw.

Did you go through the autopartitioning screen and say 'review ...'?

Comment 2 Alexandre Oliva 2002-08-22 21:48:33 UTC
Ok, I've tried to do it again, and failed.  It may be related with the raid
devices I had in those disks before, that are now LVM PVs, so I can no longer
get to the same situation I had.  Sorry.
