Comment 2 Joel C Ewing 2012-06-10 17:08:10 EDT
Occurred when doing Custom Disk Configuration and attempting to edit a logical volume to assign it to the install process.  When logical volumes and partitions are being manually assigned for the install, it might make sense for anaconda to verify that the assigned volumes have sufficient space for their intended function, but it makes no sense to perform space checks on the volume group unless anaconda is being asked to create a new logical volume.

The volume group only contains 13GB free space, but there are existing old LV's of 27GB to be used for root and 5.5GB for swap.  There are also other LV's present, including a snapshot LV, but none of these will be selected for the install.

The failure message appears identical with earlier bugs, but these claim to have been fixed prior to the anaconda-17.29-1 on the install CD/DVD iso image.
Comment 3 Brian Lane 2012-10-23 12:07:05 EDT
This code has changed considerably. Please re-test using Anaconda 18.X and open a new bug if it is still a problem.
