my partition layout
Description of problem:
I was testing this test case: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/QA:Testcase_Anaconda_autopart_%28shrink%29_install
When I try to shrink current system installed by following all defaults, anaconda doesn't offer me lvm partition lv_root of existing system for reduction.
In attachment you can find screen shot with my layout.
It only offers to shrink the /boot partition (vda2).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install system following all defaults
2. Boot install media (Beta.TC2)
3. Proceed to the installation partition screen by selecting appropriate defaults.
4. At the disk partitioning screen, select the partition layout Shrink current system select Next
You can shrink only /boot partition
Installer should be able to shrink LVM partitions.
There are no plans to implement shrinking of lv/vg/pv stack in the "shrink current system" interface at this time.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 17 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 17. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '17'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 17 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged change the
'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 17 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2013-07-30. Fedora 17 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
