Description of problem:
Anacond generates a kickstart file with a volgroup line that, if put in, will
clear the entire contents of the volume group, but if left out, will prevent me
from assigning mount points to logical volumes I intend to preserve or format.
Even more interesting: on an interactive kickstart install, if I leave the root
filesystem out of the kickstart file because I want to put it in a preserved
volume group, the installer won't let me get to the disk druid screen. When I
click on Next in the Mouse Configuration screen, it opens a window saying that
errors have occurred with my partitioning, because I have not defined a root
partition, but when I click Ok, it remains in the Mouse Configuration screen, so
I can't fix the problem.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create a kickstart file setting only /boot and swap. Enable the `interactive'
2.Boot the installer with this kickstart file
3.Try to get to the Disk Druid screen
Actual Results: You can't
Expected Results: You should.
And what was already more interesting got further interesting yet: if I leave
out all partitioning-related options, it will just say it couldn't make a
primary partition and give me `Reboot' as the only option. :-( No kickstart
for me :-(
You should be able to do this now (tested locally). See bug 82406 for the gory
Confirmed, it works.
