Bug in anaconda after selection any type of Partitioning Setup. Also bug afterselecting "Upgrade Existing System" (no workaround):File "/usr/lib/anaconda/gui.py", line 632, in nextClicked  self.dispatch.gotoNext()File "/usr/lib/anaconda/dispatch.py", line 150, in gotoNext  self.moveStep()File "/usr/lib/anaconda/dispatch.py", line 215, in moveStep  rc=apply(func, self.bindArgs(args))File "/usr/lib/anaconda/partitioning.py", line 57, in partitionObjectsInitialize  partitions.setFromDisk(diskset)File "/usr/lib/anaconda/partition.py", line 184, in setFromDisk  lvm.vgscan()File "/usr/lib/anaconda/lvm.py", line 38, in vgscan  raise SystemError, "vgscan failed"SystemError: vgscan failed

Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2003-01-28 20:16:30 UTC
This is fixed in our current codebase by ignoring errors from vgscan and just
disabling lvm in those cases
