Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 113003
Manual partitioning prevents install image copying
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:35 EST
Description of problem:
In attempting to install over a debian installation, I chose manual
partitioning. I told it to reformat my '/' partition, and selected
the proper '/home' partition, but told it not to format that. Both
are ext3. The installation continued and formatted the root partition
fine. However, while copying the installation image over, it reached
about 80% of the way and stopped claiming that the most likely cause
of the problem was lack of hard drive space (the root partition alone
is 9GB - not likely). I tried this several times recieving the same
error. Finally, I started the installation from the beginning,
selected manual partitioning, and did not specify the '/home'
partition. Installation went fine.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora Core 1
Steps to Reproduce:
1. select manual partitioning
2. tell it to format the '/' partition, but not the '/home' partition
Does booting with 'linux allowcddma' work around the problem?
