Description Luis Villa 2001-08-12 20:43:55 UTC
Description of Problem: When I get to the partitioning options screen in the installer, only drive hdc is shown as an option to partition. This despite the fact that drives hdb and sda are recognized by kudzu. How Reproducible: Completely, on my system. Steps to Reproduce: 1. Install normally, selecting 'custom install.' 2. Get warnings about 'unable to align partition properly.' Click to ignore them. 3. Select 'automatic partitioning' 4. See that only one hard drive is available.  This is because hdc was formatted incorrectly at one point, such that hda is mounted and not hda1. Actual Results: Only one hard drive is available. Expected Results: All three hard drives are selectable for formatting/installation. Additional Information: As per the recommendation of jeremy katz, I queried kudzu, which reports (correctly) that three HDs are installed on the system. The drives are also mountable without messing with modules, etc., so I'm assuming the kernel is set up correctly. P.S. If you don't have friends at RH it'd be hard to know that installer bugs should be filed under anaconda. I'd recommend creating another product in the bugzilla named 'installer' with the same owner, QA contact, etc. as anaconda or better yet renaming the anaconda product 'installer [anaconda]'

Hrm. I'm going to suggest closing the bug; it appears that the problem was that I clicked 'cancel' instead of 'ignore'. Perhaps that error dialogue should be re-written to make it more clear what the impact of the two choices will be.

We (Red Hat) should really try to fix this before next release.

There is a component called 'installer'. It has the same owner and QA contact as anaconda. We're in a screen freeze at the moment, we'll have to change this screen in the future. Deferring.
