Comment 2 Andre Robatino 2013-03-24 02:19:37 UTC
Proposing as Alpha Blocker according to https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Fedora_19_Alpha_Release_Criteria#Rescue_mode : "The rescue mode of the installer must start successfully and be able to detect and mount an existing default installation."

Comment 3 Vratislav Podzimek 2013-03-26 14:23:29 UTC
Patch posted to anaconda-patches.

Comment 4 Adam Williamson 2013-03-27 16:17:57 UTC
Discussed at 2013-03-27 blocker review meeting: http://meetbot.fedoraproject.org/fedora-blocker-review/2013-03-27/f19alpha-blocker-review-3.2013-03-27-16.01.log.txt . Accepted as a blocker per criterion cited in comment #2.

Comment 5 Adam Williamson 2013-03-28 20:18:39 UTC
Can someone review Vratislav's patch and get it in the next anaconda build? It's been on the list since Tuesday. Be good to fix as many blockers as possible for the next build (and make sure there are no others behind them). Thanks!

(I see the same rescue backtrace with Alpha TC3 netinst.iso (anaconda-19.14))
