The Rocky Linux 9.2 installation fails on systems if the HDD/SSD device name contains a double quote like ATA_2.5"_SATA_SSD_3MG2 and LVM is used in disk partitioning. It fails directly after you click Begin Installation when the installer tries to create the partitioning layout: “Creating lvmpv on /dev/dsa3”
The installer stops with unknown error and the more info window shows:
DBusError: Process reported exit code 5: Parse error at byte 378 (line 20): unexpected token
Error parsing metadata for VG rl
Failed to write VG rl
If I look into “/etc/lvm/devices/system.devices” the IDNAME contains the double quote: IDNAME=ATA_2.5"_SATA_SSD_3MG2
=> This seems the root cause for me.
The issue is related to the my previous problem reported here:
It was fixed upstream in lvm2. I was able to apply the patch to lvm2-2.03.17-7 and this solved the problem for me:
The fix is meanwhile also released in lvm2-2.03.21-1:
The difference is that in 9.1 the installation was successful and the problem appeared later when the system was used.
Now the issue appears happens during installation
How can the patch be applied to lvm2 used in install.img of Rocky DVD iso?
