Description Mike McLean 2002-09-09 18:40:52 EDT
* -re0906.1

Got this traceback during an automated install test.  There was no lvm in this
install.  The previous install did not have lvm either (although it did have
root on /dev/md0 raid1).  The machine had run an lvm case earlier that day, but
afaict it had gone through about 9 successful installs of the same tree before
it hit this traceback.

Will attach details.

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 694, in ?

Is this related to bug#73112 ?
Comment 4 Michael Fulbright 2002-09-16 15:12:34 EDT

There are still some cases where vgscan will segfault due to incomplete data
being left on the drives. I have a newer lvm package that ought to fix it.
Comment 5 Michael Fulbright 2002-11-13 15:28:22 EST
lvm tools in current tree should help this problem.
Comment 6 Mike McLean 2002-12-10 12:43:07 EST
Well, haven't hit this in a long time.  Closing.

Time tracking values updated
