Re: logvol --noformat on FC5

Hi Axel,

Can you send the bug number once you submit it? I think this will be a problem I will have to deal with in a few months when we have to upgrade a number of systems with LVM on them.

Thank you,

I'm trying to setup a kickstart file to reinstall FC5 on a hard disk
while keeping a data partition intact. The data partition is in fact a
logical volume to allow me to reshuffle PEs if neccessary.

If I look at the anaconda.cfg that is created when I enter the setup
manually in anaconda I see the following directives:

#part /boot --fstype ext3 --onpart sda1
#part pv.2 --noformat --onpart sda2
#volgroup systemoctopus --pesize=32768 pv.2
#logvol /srv/atrpms.net/storage/octopus --noformat --fstype ext3 --name=data --vgname=systemoctopus --size=222272 #logvol / --fstype ext3 --name=root --vgname=systemoctopus -- size=14976 #logvol swap --fstype swap --name=swap --vgname=systemoctopus -- size=1984

But if I try to use them to automate the process the install results

| Error mounting device systemoctopus/data as
| /srv/atrpms.net/storage/octopus: No such file or directory
| This most likely meas this partition has not been formated.
| Press OK to reboot your system.

BTW: Even though there is this error message the data partition that
was to be --noformat'ed is lost. Looks like anaconda wipes the whole
volume group.

Looks like the bug is in missing --noformat on the volgroup
declaration as well as missing --useexisting on the logvol lines w/o
the --noformat. E.g. the bug is in the creation of the anaconda.cfg
file, not in the parsing.

I'll file a bug as soon as bugzilla is up again.
