screenshot with loop devices
Description of problem:
When running graphical (vnc) installation of F16 on s390x, filtering UI shows loop devices (loop0 - loop2) in addition to DASD drives. See attached screenshot.
These loop devices are:
-bash-4.2# losetup -a
/dev/loop0: :5674 (/squashfs.img)
/dev/loop1: :3 (/run/initramfs/squashfs/LiveOS/rootfs.img)
/dev/loop2: :6012 (/overlay)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. start the installation in vnc mode
2. proceed to "Specialized Storage Devices"
3. inspect "Basic Devices" tab
loop devices are available to be used for the installation
loop devices are not shown
I can see this on x86_64, both alpha and beta-tc2.
David, I can reproduce this easily so in case you haven't started working on this yet you can assign it to me.
Discussed in the 2011-09-30 blocker bug review meeting. Rejected as a blocker bug for Fedora 16 final because it doesn't hit any release criteria, only shows up with advanced storage devices and doesn't prevent installation.
However, it can't be fixed post-release and it does look bad to have non-usable devices in the installer. Accepted as NTH for Fedora 16 final.
Fixed by 9936f7037d4fbcb1401e5b5e0c46043d80b8b43f (2f133582caf371d4a21ef15d8b73093ac6d65e2d on master).
*** Bug 743858 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
I can confirm that loop devices are not shown with anaconda-16.22
let's close this, then, as anaconda is well past 16.22.
