f18b tc3 anaconda automatic partitioning is unable to reclaim space by deleting the partitions that the user marked for deletion
Last modified: 2012-11-22 23:42:40 EST
Description of problem:
Anaconda could not delete two partitions to reclaim space. So automatic
partitioning fails to reclaim space.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select the first hard disk (already partitioned) "you don't have enough space.."
2. Reclaim Space, be set for deletion previous swap and /boot
3. "you have plenty of space", continue!
4. Installation Destination will show "Error checking storage configuration"
enter and double-click the yellow banner "not enough free space on disks"
anaconda should be able to remove the partitions that the user requested for removal. if there is a reason for not removing, anaconda should print an error.

I believe this should be fixed with anaconda-18.20-1. Please double check and get back to us if this is not the case. Thanks.
This bug looks to have been fixed for many anaconda builds now but missed being closed. If you find you are still experiencing it with Fedora 18 Beta (RC1) or later, please re-open the bug.
