Description Bevis King 2004-08-17 16:38:39 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040626 Firefox/0.9.1 Description of problem: When manually partitioning with Disk Druid, a Free Space entry appears between each partition in a extended partition; consider this partition table: /dev/hda1 / 640MB /dev/hda2 swap 4096MB /dev/hda3 /usr 8192MB /dev/hda4 Extended /dev/hda5 /var 512MB /dev/hda6 /tmp 4096MB /dev/hda7 /opt Remainder When entering in Disk Druid, you get: /dev/hda4 Extended Free Space < 1 /dev/hda5 /var 512MB Free Space < 1 /dev/hda6 /tmp 4096MB Free Space < 1 /dev/hda7 /opt 20912MB Free Space < 1 Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Partition manually using table above (or similar) 2. 3. Actual Results: Lots of extraneous small Free Space < 1MB entries you have no power to correct. Expected Results: If there's no interface to correct it, don't show sub-cylinder filesystem size errors like these, or modify implementation to make the partition border to "nearest" complete cylinder.

Hmm this seems to be bug # 119479 again. It may be my "fix" for showing small partitions for apple bootstrap only is incorrect. Investigating
Comment 2 Bevis King 2004-08-18 14:25:27 UTC
I've just tried a different machine, this time an older one with a 20GB disc rather than the brand new one with a 40GB disc; the older machine didn't show any problems with small blocks of free between partions. The issue would appear to only show with certain disc geometries. I should be able to get the exact parameters of each disc if you need them.
Comment 3 Paul Nasrat 2004-08-26 05:58:36 UTC
My logic for Apple_Bootstrap was flawed - which may have caused this. I've commited a correct fix to HEAD - could you retest when FC3test2 is released. Or I could create an updates.img for you for fc3test1 if you'd prefer.
Comment 4 Bevis King 2004-08-26 10:02:31 UTC
Right now this particular machine is unable to work with FC3test1 as the standard kernel (as opposed to the boot kernel) does an oops seconds after booting. This bug has also been reported. Once there's a fixed kernel and the machine might actually work, I'll give it another try. At the very least I will be trying FC3test2 on it. Cheers. Regards, Bevis.
