Description J.H. 2012-08-07 21:11:24 EDT
Description of problem:

Pretty simple:

1) Do a new install
2) Do a custom disk partitioning
3) Create a raid device, md0.  The underlying devices should *NOT* be encrypted
4) Set md0 to be formatted and encrpted
5) Hit 'next' and write changes to disk

After doing this the system will try for a couple of minutes then gets a giant anaconda installer failure.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

All the time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. see above.
Actual results:

Partition laytout in an unfinished state, in particular the raid array is pretty messed up.

Expected results:

An encrypted luks volume residing on the md device itself

(Not a software raid array across multiple luks devices)

This sounds like a dup of https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=847547 .  Does the information in that bug help?
