My issue with recent F18 nightlies hasn't been the presence or absence of LVM. It's been trying to put specific partitions on specific physical drives. I haven't figured out how to use the redesigned Anaconda to get that done. I thought I had with the 30 Oct nightly, only to discover that it had ignored one drive, used all of a 3TB drive for /home, created two swap partitions of different sizes, and put a 500MB /boot and a 58MB "/" on a 240GB SSD, leaving the remainder unpartitioned. That wasn't what I'd asked it to do.
The semantics of the partitioner have changed, as well. It talks about "reclaiming space" when it appears to mean creating a new partition table. How to go about that is not, to my thinking, made terribly obvious in the interface.
Looking forward to the Beta. This looks like a very nice release, Anaconda issues or no.
