Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 12105
Installer formats correct partitions, but says its formatting incorrect partitions
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:56 EDT
On this test machine, the partition scheme is:
/dev/hda1 -> win98
/dev/hda2 -> win2k
/dev/hda3 -> Be 5
/dev/hda5 -> Linux /
/dev/hda6 -> Linux swap
/dev/hda7 -> Linux /usr
I told it to mount /dev/hda1 as /win98, /dev/hda5 as /, and /dev/hda7 as
/usr. I also told it to format hda5 and hda7. It popped up the status box
"formatting /" (as it should have), and then when that finished, a status
box "formatting /win98" (which is definitely wrong). Fortunately, only the
labelling in anaconda is incorrect (it said it was formatting /win98, but
it actually formatted /usr, like it should have)....
Please reproduce in the test lab.
Beta 2 doesn't have this problem. If you can't reproduce it, I think you can
unable to reproduce in test ... thanks for your report, and glad to hear that it
is resolved in beta2!
