Comment 16 wagerrard 2012-11-02 05:23:53 UTC
Anaconda 18,23:  In "Manual Partitioning", clicked on name of existing partition.

Package: anaconda-18.23
OS Release: Fedora release 18

Comment 17 Jeff Moyer 2012-11-02 18:19:52 UTC
I chose to review/modify partition layout myself.  I then selected an existing /boot partition from a rhel6 install (that install was to partitions, no lvm involved).  It was when I made this selection that the unknown error dialog appeared.

Package: anaconda-18.23
OS Release: Fedora release 18

Comment 18 John Reiser 2012-11-02 18:20:20 UTC
UEFI boot full-install DVD.  Custom install to GPT disk that was pre-partitioned and formatted by gparted LiveCD: 50MiB fat16 EFI System Partition (boot flag), 500MiB ext4 /boot, 15GiB / (root), 4GiB swap.  Click on '+' to expand "Unknown", click on "EFI System Partition".  Traceback.

Package: anaconda-18.23
OS Release: Fedora release 18

Comment 19 Chris Lumens 2012-11-02 18:23:00 UTC
Yeah, trivially reproducible.  Sigh.

Comment 20 Adam Williamson 2012-11-02 19:31:24 UTC
With the number of people hitting this and how simple it sounds to reproduce, looks blocker-y. Technically 18.23 isn't in stable yet, but we should track this as we obviously need to ship something post-18.22.

Comment 21 Brian Lane 2012-11-02 23:40:34 UTC

whoops, nominated for final not beta by mistake.

Comment 25 Adam Williamson 2012-11-05 16:35:18 UTC
Discussed at 2012-11-05 QA meeting acting as a blocker review meeting. Accepted as a blocker per criterion "The installer's custom partitioning mode must be capable of the following ... Creating, destroying and assigning mount points to partitions of any specified size using most commonly-used filesystem types."

Comment 26 Jeff Moyer 2012-11-05 18:27:12 UTC
If you need testing, just point me to an install image that has the new anaconda and I'd be happy to give it a try.

Thanks!

Comment 27 Adam Williamson 2012-11-05 21:22:07 UTC
Jeffrey: https://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/alt/stage/18-Beta-TC7/ has 18.24. Thanks!

Can anyone else who could reproduce this please test with 18.24 and confirm that it's fixed? Thanks!

Comment 28 Reartes Guillermo 2012-11-05 22:04:41 UTC
booted a guest with a preexisting f18, selected the disk and entered manual partitioning
selected the /, changed it size to 500000 then to 0 and then back to 500000


Package: anaconda-18.24
OS Release: Fedora release 18-Beta-TC7

Comment 29 wagerrard 2012-11-05 22:25:54 UTC
Burned a TC7 CD his morning. Booted it on a box with 3 physical drives. Deleted the existing partitions via the do-it-myself Reclaim Space option. Went to Manual Partition screen where, correctly, no partitions were visible. Clicked on "Automatic", which created /, /Boot, /Home, and swap. Resized /Home, /, and swap, then created a few other partitions.  Everything successful.

The partitioning made efficient and logical use of the drives, but, except for /Boot and / on the designated boot drive, I didn't see a way to identify or control which partitions went on which drives.

Comment 30 Adam Williamson 2012-11-05 23:26:09 UTC
wagerrard: click the 'gears' button next to the + and - buttons, and you get a dialog that lets you pick what disk the partition goes on.

Comment 31 Adam Williamson 2012-11-05 23:29:45 UTC
bcl, comment #28 indicates reartes managed to hit this even with 18.24. does that indicate a problem with the fix, or is his a corner case that wasn't covered? how worried are we?

Comment 32 Fedora Update System 2012-11-06 01:38:08 UTC
anaconda-18.25-1.fc18 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 18.

Comment 33 Fedora Update System 2012-11-07 02:10:08 UTC
anaconda-18.26-1.fc18 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 18.
https://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/anaconda-18.26-1.fc18

Comment 34 Adam Williamson 2012-11-07 19:23:35 UTC
David, can you take a look at this, re comment #31? Is the fix incomplete? how bad is it that this can still be reproduced with the method described in #28?

Comment 35 David Lehman 2012-11-07 19:25:23 UTC

Please open a new bug report including all logs. Thanks.

Comment 36 Adam Williamson 2012-11-07 20:52:03 UTC
as wagerrard reports the initial reproducer of this is fixed, and dlehman considers the comment #28 reproducer a separate bug, setting VERIFIED.

Comment 37 Fedora Update System 2012-11-08 03:24:22 UTC
anaconda-18.27-1.fc18 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 18.
https://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/anaconda-18.27-1.fc18

Comment 38 Adam Williamson 2012-11-08 09:15:17 UTC
18.26 went stable. Closing. (Bodhi closing of bugs when updates go stable is currently broken). Subsequent dupes of this are likely to be a different bug (see comment #35).

Comment 39 Jeff Moyer 2012-11-09 22:19:20 UTC
I finally got around to testing this and it worked fine for me.

Comment 40 Adam Williamson 2012-11-10 05:44:18 UTC
Thanks for the confirmation, Jeffrey.
