Description Patrick C. F. Ernzer 2001-09-08 02:26:00 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i586; en-US; rv:0.9.3) Gecko/20010803 Description of problem: The screen for entering partition information and the help file do not make it clear if e.g. 'dev/sda' od 'sda' has to be used when specifying a disc to create a partition on. A screenshot states '/dev/sda'. At least on ide drives, prepending '/dev/' crashes anaconda in kickstart mode, leaving '/dev/' off allows installation. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): RE-0831 How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. open ksconfig 2. go to Creating Partitions 3. open help text Actual Results: wrong information in screenshot Expected Results: * an example in the help text. * correct information in screenshot. Additional info: logged as 'high' as anaconda crashes with '/dev/hda' but works with 'hda'. Having no SCSI disk here to test, I can not tell for 100% what happens on SCSI systems but I'd guess the problem is the same.

It's too late to change things now. :( tfox, how do you think we should address this? Should we change the docs, or should we change ksconfig so that you enter '/dev/hda', but then '/dev/' gets chopped off? The correct syntax for the kickstart file is to not have the '/dev/' in the file, which I always thought was counter-intuitive.
Comment 2 Patrick C. F. Ernzer 2001-09-12 16:52:29 UTC
please change the docs, getting ksconfig to chop off stuff will only lead to a lot of confusion on the user side when seeing the generated file as it will not represent what was entered.

This is not in the screenshot for the current version 1.9.8. I will add information stating that you should not specify the /dev for onpart or ondisk.
Comment 4 Tammy Fox 2001-09-13 14:40:15 UTC
Ok, sorry. I finally see which screenshot you are talking about. I thought you meant the Creating Partitions screen. I see the /dev/sda in the Partition Information screen on the top of the page. I changed it and add the text I mentioned earlier.
