Partions to be created:

/dev/hda3           swap
/dev/hdb1   /home   ext3
/dev/hdc1   /var    ext3
Comment 1 David C. Wright 2005-06-22 16:11:55 EDT
Rebooted system, ran parted to remove partions from hda, hdb, hdc, then reran
the installer.  Worked ok.
Comment 2 Chris Lumens 2005-06-22 16:29:39 EDT
I believe this is fixed by the file descriptor leak patch.  See bug 160693.
