The latest failure is anaconda failing silently (no traceback) on an LV
create of the swap filesystem in a "pure vanilla" install.
No traceback means no bug report to make.
If you haven't yet filed a bug, please do at bugzilla.redhat.com
those who do not know, anaconda for Fedora 11 is getting the entire
storage backend rewritten. That's the code that deals with disks,
drives, partitions, raid, lvm, filesystems, and so on. Details:
So please file bugs. Even if there is no traceback, file a bug and
describe what happened, including what steps you took during
installation. Also include a description of your hardware so we can
reproduce the problem locally.
Pretty much all of us on the anaconda team have been working day and
night with few breaks to get this code rewritten.
Several people have asked why we are rewriting the storage code in
anaconda. It's the last major piece of anaconda that's still mostly
original anaconda code. April 24, 2009 is the 10 year anniversary of
anaconda. A lot has changed in the world of storage in 10 years and we
need code that can scale and adapt as necessary.
