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):

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.
Comment 2 Chris Lumens 2009-05-13 16:09:32 EDT
This should be fixed in the next build of anaconda.  Thanks for the bug report.
Comment 3 Tom Lane 2009-05-14 15:56:16 EDT
Confirmed fixed in .52.  Thanks!
