Description Owen Taylor 2003-03-06 23:37:42 UTC
[ With the latest GinGin tree ] I don't have an exact sequence to reproduce this, but it more or less went like: - Select automatic partioning - Watch it make a 36 meg / on /hda2 - Hit Next - Change my mind, hit back - Split 36 megs into a 20 meg /home on /hda2 and a 16 meg / on /hda3 - Hit next, continue with install At the end of the install, I ended up with: /hda2 formatted, label /home /hda3 not formatted And the install on /hda2. (So no / label at all, system didn't boot, time to reinstall)

Just curious, didnt you get a warning that 36M is not enough for '/'?
Comment 2 Owen Taylor 2003-03-07 19:32:54 UTC
Please add in the correct power of 1024 ... I meant (perhaps obviously) gig not mem.
Comment 3 Michael Fulbright 2003-03-12 17:30:34 UTC
Thanks for the clarification.
Comment 4 Michael Fulbright 2003-03-13 21:07:23 UTC
I tried this on two machines and couldn't hit it. Can you reproduce it on demand? I'd like to track down the problem you saw if possible.
Comment 5 Owen Taylor 2003-03-13 22:09:13 UTC
Sorry, unfortunately, the machine I was testing on is the machine I'm typing on now, and not really up for reinstall. I didn't try to try to repeat the problem. All I can suggest about reproduction is that I may have gone more than one screen forward.... I didn't find the problem until the machine finished installing an hour or so later, so it was a bit vague at that point what I actually did. (But I don't think it was anything _too_ weird.) Feel feel to close if you feel that nothing useful can be done without more information.

It seems unlikely I'm going to be able to address this w/o a reproducible test case :(.
