Last modified: 2013-01-08 14:01:01 EST
Description of problem:
I try to change root's device type to "Raid"on Manual Partitioning ,the system crash after the change
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.do default install
2.choose GNOME Desktop or other for software selection
3.change the root'device type to Raid
the installer crashed
install the system successfully
actually,I do the manual partitioning first ,the installer also crash
I think the component should be anaconda :) Changing.
Are you still seeing this problem with one of the final test candidates? If so, please attach the complete /tmp/anaconda-tb-* file to this bug report. Thanks.
Actually, in the recent versions,there is no RAID in the device type list.
While RAID is not listed in the initial combo box for picking whether you want to go into the custom partitioning, I do see it as an option for the root device's device type as long as I have at least two disks included in the installation. How many disks do you have? Also, I'm not seeing any crashes.
Hi Chris,it's my fault.When I did one disk install,and had not seen RAID in the type list as in the previous editions，I just ignored this testcase .
As you say,there is no crashes.However,the"Error detection","Distributed","Redudant"in the MANUAL PARTITIONING can not be choosed.Is that OK?
The presence of those options is dictated by the number of disks you have selected for installation. For instance, we won't let you select a RAID level that requires four disks if you only have two, or two disks if you only have one. My guess is that's what you are seeing here.
