Description Robert Scheck 2007-05-17 13:29:17 EDT
Description of problem:
Anaconda is searching for existing installations of Fedora even if no 
partitioning table exists (screen before tells that and asks whether it is 
okay that all data will be destroyed). This is bogous. Either or, please!

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
anaconda-11.2.0.58-1

How reproducible:
Everytime, see above.

Expected results:
Only search for current installations of Fedora when there is a readable 
partitioning table... ;-)

You could have more than one disk...  we'll take a look at optimizing out this
case for F8.  It shouldn't be too bad to do, but I'm a little wary of
destabilizing things at this point.
Comment 2 Robert Scheck 2007-05-17 16:13:30 EDT
Well, than searching should be done if there's more than one disk.
Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2007-09-21 14:12:09 EDT
Improved for F8
