Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 84875
pvcreate failed during installation
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:51:31 EDT
Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Using stock RH 8.0 isos
Seems to happen every time. Warning occurs three times just before the python
error: something like "partition table on /dev/hdg changed but has not been
reread by the kernel." I hit ignore on each. Then the failure.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot from CD or Boot floppy.
2. Partition the drives, and choose your packages
3. Continue and it will fail.
See attached anaconda dump.
HW: Athlon XP 1900+ on Asus A7V333 + RAID motherboard. 2 maxtor 60 GB 7200RPM
drives connected to the two raid channels. Using the RAID disabled bios from
http://www.lumberjacker.de/Downloads/downloads.html, since Asus doesn't want to
release a bios that disables the onboard raid without disabling IDE as well.

This is the dump that Anaconda made.
Matt any ideas why he would be getting the failure to re-read the partition table?
It's most likely a problem with the PDC 20276 RAID chipset. I installed beta 3
last night and it worked fine (there are a few warnings on boot, but nothing
that seemed important.)
If it works with phoebe, closing as rawhide. We've changed versions of parted
and the newer parted is nicer about handling partition table changes.
