Description Markus Sufke 2004-03-25 22:51:52 EST

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.1)

Description of problem:
After a successfull install of FC1 using 4 partitions and no warning
messages, FC2 Test1 brings up the message "Partition table
inconsistant" during disk druid.

finish doing minmal install, reboot
then hangs at "GRUB "
from there on, I am unable to reinstall FC1. I had to use fdisk in
Knoppix to recreate the partition table

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. see above

Actual Results:  see above

Expected Results:  system should have rebooted

Additional info:

The partition table was as follows for FC1:
1 - 14 /boot
15 - 1338 /
1339 -1405 swap
1406 - 7753 /judy
when installing FC2 it shows:
1 - 1 free
1 - 210 /boot
211 - 20070 /
20071 - 21075 swap
21076 - 116295 /judy
116296 - 116301 free
after deleting partions and creating 4 new primary partitions, 1 - 1
still shows at the start.

This actually happened on two different HP Pavilion systems, though I
only went through the process of debugging the one.

Note - this still happens on Test2
Comment 2 Warren Togami 2004-04-10 23:06:43 EDT
Please supply a lot more detailed hardware descriptions including
lspci -n.  Without more details it is unlikely we will be able to
solve this problem.

This should be fixed with test3
