Run rawhide. You can do this by installing F17 and yum upgrading to rawhide.
There is an issue with dracut not working with device-mapper-multipath
installed. And there is a plymouth issue breaking mounting encrypted
devices other than the root file system during boot. You can work around
it manually fixing things up after every reboot, but it's a bit of a pain.
I had been testing /tmp on tmpfs, but turned it off because it was hiding /tmp
where httpd had dumped a lot of core files which I was having trouble removing.
There is probably some tricky way to bind mount / and get at that directory,
but it was simpler to turn it off and reboot. I haven't turned it back on
yet, because I was worried about httpd regularly filling /tmp up, but the
problems seems to have stopped now.
