Description Jan Stodola 2012-12-11 10:30:17 UTC
Description of problem: Warning dialog is not shown when user uses raw partition for / mount point and doesn't create new file system on it. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): anaconda-13.21.187-1.el6 How reproducible: always Steps to Reproduce: 1. install system where /boot, / and swap are raw partitions 2. start new installation in graphical mode 3. when asked, select "Fresh Installation" 4. proceed to custom partitioning 5. reuse partition for /boot from previous install, create new file system (check "Format as:") 6. reuse partition for / from previous install, make sure that "Format as:" is unchecked and click "OK" Actual results: There is no warning that formatting has not been selected for / partition Expected results: User is warned when reusing / from previous installation and formatting of the partition has not been selected. Additional info: I'm only able to reproduce then reusing raw partition for /. When reusing / on LVM, anaconda correctly shows warning dialog.

I followed the steps to reproduce, but this isn't happening when I test with the latest 6.5 nightly. I see the warning message as I would expect to.
