Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 749064
crash when examining disks with a VM where one disk is a software RAID member
Last modified: 2012-11-29 22:57:51 EST
Well, I think the summary's accurate.
F16 TC2 and the pre-RC1 test image are both crashing for me after I select 'basic storage devices' in a particular VM. The VM has two disks attached; it's the second, vdb, which causes it to crash, I think. I think that disk is a 'stale' RAID member, it was part of a software RAID array I created for testing, but the other member of that array doesn't really exist any more.
abrt thinks the crash is a dupe of 731177, but I don't think so, as TC2 should have that selinux-policy fix. I'm attaching the traceback.

Proposing as a blocker as it's an installer crash, though it may wind up being NTH, since this is a pretty silly disk setup and I could probably work around it by zeroing out the drive or something.
un-proposing, this is caused by dirty RAID which we don't support anyway - even if we fix the crash you wouldn't be able to install to it. so it's not critical.
Have you seen this at all in F18 testing? I seem to recall some testing of incomplete RAIDs, but don't remember the exact conclusions.
Well, we have other bugs for it now. So we can probably close this one. But pretty much all incomplete multi-member devices are causing anaconda to crash in Beta, it has no handling for them.
