Description Keenan Pepper 2004-05-08 04:16:22 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.1)

Description of problem:
When auto-partition option is selected during install, later parted
cannot handle the partitions created.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
GNU Parted 1.6.6

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Wipe hard drive and do clean install of Fedora Core 1
2. Select auto-partition option in anaconda (don't know if manual is
any different)
3. Boot from GNU Parted rescue disk
4. Try to do anything to the new ext3 partitions with parted

Actual Results:  Parted says:
No Implementation: This ext2 filesystem has a rather strange layout!
Parted can't resize this (yet).

Expected Results:  Parted should be able to check/move/resize/etc. the
new partitions.

Additional info:

This is definitely not an ext3-specific issue because I converted the
ext3 partitions to ext2 with tune2fs and parted did exactly the same
A work-around is to first create the partitions with parted and then
install Fedora into the existing partitions.

This is actually just that parted doesn't have support for some of the
newer ext[23] features.
