Description Mark Hamzy 2013-05-23 21:54:33 UTC
Created attachment 752400 [details]

Booting http://ppc.koji.fedoraproject.org/stage/f19-20130523-Beta-RC4.1/ppc64/iso/Fedora-19-ppc64-DVD.iso with the following command line:

boot: linux inst.vnc inst.sshd ip= ip= nameserver= bootdev=eth0 ks=http://chukar.rch.stglabs.ibm.com/Fedora19-sharpie-lvm_auto-cdrom-minimal-ks.cfg

The kickstart file is:

# System authorization information

# Use CDROM installation media

# Run the Setup Agent on first boot

Does not proceed to installation.  Instead, the following error is displayed:

storage configuration failed: Not enough free space on disks for automatic partitioning

Comment 4 Mark Hamzy 2013-05-23 21:59:56 UTC
The kickstart file worked back when it had one virtual scsi drive.  Now it has 3: sda, sdb, and sdc.  Although only one is mentioned in the kickstart file.

Comment 5 David Lehman 2013-05-24 15:08:01 UTC
It looks like the storage execute thread is running twice. Chris thinks it is related to the fact that the storage spoke's changed property is now always true.

Comment 6 Mark Hamzy 2013-05-28 16:52:59 UTC
Proposing as a FinalBlocker:

"The installer must be able to use all available kickstart delivery methods."

Comment 7 Chris Lumens 2013-05-28 20:47:32 UTC
I was definitely able to reproduce this on Friday, but not so much today.  Can you please retest with whatever the next image is and let me know?  Thanks.

Comment 8 Adam Williamson 2013-05-29 16:42:50 UTC
Discussed at 2013-05-29 blocker review meeting: http://meetbot.fedoraproject.org/fedora-blocker-review/2013-05-29/f19final-blocker-review-1.2013-05-29-16.02.log.txt . As we're waiting for info from the reporter, we'll delay evaluation of this for now.

Comment 9 Mark Hamzy 2013-06-05 14:34:53 UTC
Ran into bug 971046 trying to see if this still happens.

Comment 10 Adam Williamson 2013-06-05 16:59:18 UTC
Discussed at 2013-06-05 blocker review meeting: http://meetbot.fedoraproject.org/fedora-blocker-review/2013-06-05/f19final-blocker-review-3.2013-06-05-16.05.log.txt .  We are still waiting for information to figure out whether this is affecting multiple configurations or if it's specific to Mark's config in some way. (We appreciate that you're trying, Mark, I'm just doin' bureaucracy here :>)

Comment 11 Mark Hamzy 2013-06-07 15:56:04 UTC
I tested a private build of anaconda-19.30.3-1.fc19 and mozjs17-17.0.0-4.fc19.kh.ppc64 (to fix the GError) and it still fails for me.

Comment 12 Adam Williamson 2013-06-10 16:30:47 UTC
Discussed again at 2013-06-10 blocker review meeting: http://meetbot.fedoraproject.org/fedora-blocker-review/2013-06-10/f19final-blocker-review-4.2013-06-10-16.01.log.txt . We will see if this can be reproduced on a primary arch before deciding whether it is a blocker. Mark, if there are any unique elements of the machine's configuration besides those described above, it might help us reproduce the issue.

Comment 13 Mark Hamzy 2013-06-10 18:20:15 UTC
From the meeting notes, it sounds like kparal can reproduce this on PA:

16:24:10 <adamw> i guess we do need to see if anyone else can hit it now, though
16:25:49 <dgilmore> yeah
16:25:49 * kparal running it
16:26:03 <tflink> proposed #agreed - This has been reproduced on ppc but it needs to be reproduced on PA before taking it as a blocker. will revisit when more information is available
16:26:23 <tflink> unless we want to wait for kparal's run to finish
16:26:50 <tflink> wasn't there also a question about whether ks was sequential or not - ie, the order or part and clearpart?
16:27:43 <adamw> ack
16:27:50 <dgilmore> ack
16:27:54 <adamw> possibly, but that's probably just me guessing stuff
16:28:27 <tflink> other ack/nak/patch?
16:28:29 <jreznik> ack
16:29:00 * kparal is experiencing technical difficulties
16:29:36 <kparal> I got usual "no disks selected"

This is what I see for my kickstart install:


Then, going into "Installation Destination" and selecting "click for details," I see:


I asked kparal about this and sees the same thing:

<kparal> yes, I see the same
<kparal> it might be the same bug

The bug kparal is talking about is bug 969327. Can someone from the anaconda team comment about this?

Comment 14 Mark Hamzy 2013-06-10 18:22:12 UTC

One unique thing about the setup is this is on an LPAR with 3 virtual scsi disks with installation only referencing one of said disks.

Comment 15 Adam Williamson 2013-06-10 18:53:14 UTC
mark: what I read 'usual no disks selected' as meaning was that kparal hit this bug:


we were pontificating that that bug, this bug, and https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=967527 might all be closely related and/or have the same underlying cause, but we're not entirely sure yet.

This will be in the next test compose, which you can just try out there.  Please don't change the bug state.
