Yesterday I installed ArchLinux with dmcrypt + LVM. When defining the size of the LVM partitions, I was unable to tell to the installer that I wanted a partition with the rest of the free space available. The installer complained about that "100%FREE" wasn't a number (which is obvious). I solved this by doing it by hand, but it would be nice if the installer could do it. Thanks.

Additional info:
* package version(s)
* config and/or log files etc.

Steps to reproduce:
