Description khedger 2000-04-30 04:16:59 UTC
Installing on a TI Extensa 660cd laptop --

I select 'custom' install and proceed. At the disk druid screen I add all
of the desired filesystems with their pertinent information. Everything
looks fine, except the 'next' button never comes available (stays grayed

There appears to be no way to navigate to the next step of the process.
There are no error messages and I can't tell that anything is missing.

I re-started the install and selected gnome/workstation for the install
type and everything worked fine, except that this isn't the configuration I
really want and this canned install only creates two filesystems (/boot and
/) and puts the main install data as filesystems within

There are a couple of requirements to get the next button to become available.
That is creating a root partition and creating a swap partition.  If you did
both of these, then the button should light and become available.  The only
other thing that I can imagine would lead to the situation that you describe
would be if you did not create a /boot partition, and the root partition was
large enough that it could put the /boot filesystem above the 1024 cylinder

Please reopen this bug if none of these cases apply.

Making a swap partition in ddruid optional has been added to our feature request
list ...
