Description Adam Williamson 2012-10-11 01:52:26 UTC
To reproduce, do something like this:

Boot F18 Beta TC3 DVD
Go into custom partitioning
Clear out all existing partitions, so all space is free
Create a 500MB /boot partition
Create a / partition of any size, say you have 14GB free, create a / partition size 8GB. Now you're showing approx 6GB 'available space'
Change the / partition's Device Type to LVM, hit Apply Changes
Now, reduce the size of the partition - say, to 5GB - and hit 'Apply Changes' again

The available space calculation goes wonky. It doesn't go up to 9GB, it goes *down* to 3GB. You can keep playing around with the size of the partition, and the 'available space' calculation will keep changing, sometimes up, usually down, but it'll rarely or never actually be correct. I have a VM open right now and I'm twiddling with this, right now it's showing a 15GB disk with a /boot partition of 500MB and a root partition of 1GB, and 5.49GB of 'free space'.

(Oh, and it actually says Gb, not GB. This is completely wrong. Gb is gigabits. It should be GB or GiB, but not Gb.)

This is definitely improved in current builds, I will file any other wonkiness I notice separately.
