Description Barry K. Nathan 2004-05-06 03:30:34 EDT

Description of problem:
If I use the "xfs" option, partition with "/" as XFS, and do not set
up a separate "/boot", then anaconda (or booty) tracebacks when
installing grub. The traceback actually percolates up from booty, but
I don't know whether booty or anaconda is ultimately the guilty party.

I have looked at the other bug reports regarding grub installation
with XFS and AFAICT my symptoms are different so I'm guessing it's
truly a different bug.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot installer with "xfs" option.
2. In Disk Druid, format "/" partition as XFS. (If you have a separate
"/boot", then format that as XFS, but I didn't test that scenario.)
3. Attempt to finish the install as normal.

Actual Results:  When it attempts to install grub, I get the traceback
which I will be attaching in the next hour or so. (I have a traceback,
but I saved it onto a 720K floppy and mdir says "0 bytes free" so I
want to reproduce this bug again and make sure nothing was truncated.

Expected Results:  Install proceeds uneventfully.
