Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 125453
Install fails on a machine with a FreeBSD partiton.
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:44 EST
Description of problem:
I have a machine with many disk partitions on which I try out various
Linux distributions. One of the partitions (hda3) has a FreeBSD 4.8
system installed on it. Trying to install FC2 on hda11 I get a box
titled 'Error' containing the following text: ' Error informing
kernel about modifications to partition /dev/hda3 - Device or
resource busy. This means Linux won't know about any changes you made
to /dev/hda3 until you reboot - so you shouldn't mount it or use it
in any way before rebooting.' I press Ignore and an unhandled
exception occurs. The only partitions I had instructed FC2 to use
were hda11 and hda8 (the swap partition).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Every time I try to install (4 times so far).
