Comment 1 Mike Gahagan 2011-08-15 20:58:20 UTC
This is reproduceable at least 2 out of 2 times...

Panic occurs during package installation, apperantly something the filesystem package is doing is causing it when it is installed.

Installing filesystem-2.4.30-3.el6.x86_64 (0 Bytes)

Comment 2 Josef Bacik 2011-08-17 13:56:04 UTC
Well that's just weird.  I can't reproduce on a normally booted system unfortunately, so I guess I'll have to figure out how to give anaconda a custom kernel, joy.

Comment 3 Mike Gahagan 2011-08-23 18:33:39 UTC
I managed to get a successful install on an x86_64 box with the 0822.5 tree


i386 and ppc64 both still seem to hang during formatting the first btrfs partition as before though.

Comment 6 RHEL Product and Program Management 2011-10-07 15:44:42 UTC
Since RHEL 6.2 External Beta has begun, and this bug remains
unresolved, it has been rejected as it is not proposed as
exception or blocker.

Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if appropriate and relevant, in the
next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

Comment 7 Mike Gahagan 2011-10-11 17:17:12 UTC
I've tried several other test runs with btrfs and was able to get the systems installed without seeing this panic so closing as currentrelase.
