Description Russell Coker 2005-05-09 11:12:42 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/3.4; Linux) KHTML/3.4.0 (like Gecko) Description of problem: I have a kickstart config to install Fedora on LVM volumes. In GUI mode things work fine. In text mode it attempts to run mkfs without first running "lvm vgchange -a y" to create the /dev/mapper nodes, this causes the install to fail. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: Try to do a kickstart install onto LVM logical volumes in text mode. Observe that the same install works in GUI mode but not in text mode. Additional info:
Comment 1 Russell Coker 2005-05-09 11:47:37 UTC
My initial report lacked an important detail. I tried the install again with running "lvm vgchange -a y" from the console (VT2) at the appropriate time. All needed /dev/mapper entries were created. Then sometime during the step "moving (1) to step enablefilesystems" the /dev/mapper entries were removed, possibly at the stage of "formatting None as volume group (LVM)" or "formatting None as physical volume (LVM)".

Text vs GUI should be identical as far as this is concerned (all of the steps which do any of this activation are independent of the UI). Please provide the error from when it failed.

I've put pictures of the screen on http://www.coker.com.au/bug/anaconda/ . Also note that the problem doesn't seem to occur on a machine with 256M of RAM, but occurs on machines with 64M of RAM.

Can you attach your ks.cfg ?

Created attachment 114446 [details] Kickstart configuration.
Comment 6 Jeremy Katz 2005-05-16 20:53:27 UTC
Can you also provide /tmp/anaconda.log and /tmp/syslog?

Since there are insufficient details provided in this report for us to investigate the issue further, and we have not received the feedback we requested, we will assume the problem was not reproduceable or has been fixed in a later update for this product. If you have further details, feel free to reopen the report with the additional details attached.
