Comment 2 Chris Lumens 2010-11-08 11:33:42 EST
Looks like something strange is going on while udev is processing, which is probably leading to /dev/sda6 never getting created.

still a problem?
Comment 8 Fedora End Of Life 2013-04-03 15:08:38 EDT
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 19 development cycle.
Changing version to '19'.

(As we did not run this process for some time, it could affect also pre-Fedora 19 development
cycle bugs. We are very sorry. It will help us with cleanup during Fedora 19 End Of Life. Thank you.)

Comment 9 Lennart Poettering 2015-01-04 21:53:21 EST
Appears to be an f14 bug. If this is reproducible on a current and supported Fedora version, please reopen.
