Description Pavel Holica 2013-05-17 04:06:04 EDT
Created attachment 749209 [details]

Description of problem:
In text mode, I've selected LVM (default) partition scheme, but anaconda started to create native partitions.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start text installation
2. When asked for "Partition Scheme Options" select LVM (default)
3. continue with installation
Actual results:
Setting up the installation environment
Creating disklabel on /dev/sda
Creating swap on /dev/sda2
Creating ext4 on /dev/sda5
Creating ext4 on /dev/sda3
Creating ext4 on /dev/sda1
Starting package installation process

Expected results:
LVM pv and lvs are created.

Additional info:
Attaching full progress.

Comment 7 Pavel Holica 2013-05-17 04:35:30 EDT
I also forgot to mention, that this happens on Fedora 19 Beta RC2.
Comment 8 Pavel Holica 2013-05-17 04:47:29 EDT
Ok, and anaconda ignores btrfs if selected too.
Comment 9 Adam Williamson 2013-05-17 17:12:55 EDT
This looks like a good candidate for Beta FE at least. You could argue it as a Beta blocker, but it's a close thing.
Comment 10 Samantha N. Bueno 2013-05-17 19:23:16 EDT
Patch posted to anaconda-patches list.
Comment 11 Adam Williamson 2013-05-17 19:28:07 EDT
Okay, let's at least consider this one as a blocker. Criteria:


"When using the dedicated installer images, the installer must be able to complete an installation using the text, graphical and VNC installation interfaces."


"When using the guided partitioning flow, the installer must be able to...Complete an installation using any combination of disk configuration options it allows the user to select"

We're in the guided flow in the text installer, it offers these options, but doesn't honor them.
Comment 12 Samantha N. Bueno 2013-05-17 19:44:51 EDT
Patch pushed, commit e80477fcada25d5fed609a902107759e4ce0d16c
Comment 13 Adam Williamson 2013-05-20 12:33:46 EDT
Discussed at 2013-05-20 blocker review meeting: http://meetbot.fedoraproject.org/fedora-blocker-review/2013-05-20/f19beta-blocker-review-7.2013-05-20-16.07.log.txt . Accepted as a Beta blocker per rationale in comment #11.
Comment 14 Fedora Update System 2013-05-21 19:35:08 EDT
anaconda-19.29-1.fc19 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 19.
Comment 15 Vojtěch Boček 2013-05-22 04:55:01 EDT
Tested on Fedora Beta RC3 netinst with anaconda 19.29-1, it works - anaconda correctly creates native, LVM and btrfs partitions when selected.
Comment 16 Adam Williamson 2013-05-23 13:38:37 EDT
still fixed in RC4.
Comment 17 Jay Greguske 2013-05-23 16:13:35 EDT
will this stay fixed in rc5?
Comment 18 Samantha N. Bueno 2013-05-23 16:28:09 EDT

> will this stay fixed in rc5?

It's tough to say, really--in a perfect world, yes.
Comment 19 Adam Williamson 2013-05-24 00:06:01 EDT
There isn't going to be an RC5.
Comment 20 Kamil Páral 2013-05-29 03:28:31 EDT
anaconda 19.30 is stable, closing.
