Description Tom Lane 2009-05-09 12:09:45 EDT
Description of problem: When installing onto a disk that contains an existing bootable OS X system, I think that the bootloader should be configured to offer that system as one of the boot menu options. It currently fails to do so. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): anaconda 126.96.36.199 How reproducible: 100% I think (didn't try more than once) Steps to Reproduce: 1. With Apple's Disk Utility, partition disk into one partition and an equal amount of free space. 2. Install OS X into the one partition. 3. Install Fedora using the "install into free space" option. Actual results: boot loader offers only Fedora, CD, and network boot options. The OSX system is still there, but can only get into it via Open Firmware option-key method. Expected results: boot loader menu should offer the OSX system as one option Additional info: Tested on Powerbook G3 laptop, using the text-mode install due to unrelated X11 issue.

Confirmed here on a G5 Power Mac. Bootloader screen never appeared during the install.

This should be fixed in the next build of anaconda. Thanks for the bug report.
