Description Patrick Mansfield 2006-01-18 18:31:30 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050922 Fedora/1.0.7-1.1.fc4 Firefox/1.0.7

Description of problem:
During text install of fc devel (dated jan 16 2006) to an IBM JS20 (ppc64
blade), after selecting the default parition, I am getting the following
warning:

    The following warnings exist with
    your requested partition scheme.

    Your PPC PReP Boot partition is less
    than 2 megabytes which is lower than
    recommended for a normal Fedora Core
    install.

    Would you like to continue with your
    requested partitioning scheme?

There were partitions on the device (hda) before I started the install (once, RHEL4 or such, and this time, I am installing on top of FC devel).

The system booted OK, but it should not complain about its default partition layout :-(

During VNC install of this same image, I got a black screen with black
text for (I assume) this same warning. I ran a text install this time to
see if anything was actually being displayed.

The partition information is displayed as:

      Device        Start    End     Size       Type     Mount Point
 VG VolGroup00                       38016M  VolGroup

1. Install to ppc64 system.
2. Use default partitioning.
3. Make money
