Comment 15 satellitgo 2012-10-04 16:12:01 EDT
no automatic partitioning offered in HD selection of f18-Beta-TC2-x86_64 CD when I try to shrink (by deleting existing partitions) Anaconda 18-12 crashes

Package: anaconda-18.12
Architecture: x86_64
OS Release: Fedora release 18-Beta-TC2
Comment 16 Jens Petersen 2012-10-05 03:51:30 EDT
Tried to recover space on my HD by deleting all existing partitions.

I assume there will be a "please just use the whole disk" option in F18.


Package: anaconda-18.12-1.fc18.x86_64

I tried to remove all existing partitions to "reclaim space".

Comment 20 Jan Sedlák 2012-10-08 09:40:17 EDT
I tried to setup partitions in F18 Beta TC2, XFCE live desktop. It said that I have full disk and whether I want to redeem space. I have selected to remove all existing partitions, then this error showed up.

Comment 23 Adam Williamson 2012-10-10 14:06:58 EDT
Discussed at 2012-10-10 blocker review meeting: http://meetbot.fedoraproject.org/fedora-qa/2012-10-10/f18beta-blocker-review-3.2012-10-10-16.05.log.txt . Accepted as a blocker per Beta criterion "The installer's custom partitioning mode must be capable of the following: Creating, destroying and assigning mount points to partitions of any specified size using most commonly-used filesystem types"
Comment 24 Kamil Páral 2012-10-16 10:25:46 EDT
This seems to be fixed with F18 Beta TC4. I created 3 primary partitions, then extended and 2 logical partitions inside. I marked all of them to be reclaimed, everything worked.
Comment 25 Adam Williamson 2012-10-18 17:26:03 EDT
Can anyone else confirm this is fixed in TC3 or later? It'd be nice to have one more confirmation before closing.
Comment 26 Jens Petersen 2012-10-19 04:23:34 EDT
I think it is, but bug 863348 is still open...
Comment 27 Jens Petersen 2012-10-19 06:14:07 EDT
Testing this now again, as far as I can tell anaconda no longer lists sda4
in its UI so I guess the problem may not be possible any more.

Anyway with F18b-smoke11 (anaconda-18-18) I am now able to reclaim space
by removing all partitions and then install with auto-partitioning.
Comment 28 Adam Williamson 2012-10-22 19:25:19 EDT
OK, let's call this fixed then. Probably was fixed in 18.14, and 18.19 is on its way to stable anyway.
