Description Bastien Nocera 2004-06-10 09:57:07 UTC
Description of problem:
added Apple Bootstrap partition doesn't show up in Disk Druid

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
10.0-5

How reproducible:
Everytime

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start the installation, and choose Disk Druid as the way to partition
2. Delete all the partitions, and then create a partition of type
"Apple Bootstrap"
3. the partition doesn't show up in the list, but will be created
*after* all the other partitions

Actual results:
Partition isn't shown and created as /dev/hda4 (partition table is
hda1, then root partition, swap, and finally the bootstrap)

Expected results:
Partition shows up, and is created before the other ones (/dev/hda2)

Additional info:
Entering the Open Firmware (Alt+Option+O+F at boot), and entering
"boot hd:4,\\yaboot" manages to boot the system.
"setenv boot-device hd:4,\\yaboot" to set it as the default.

The visibility issue is due to the fix for #119479, I've just commited
a fix to HEAD.

Comment 2 Colin Charles 2004-08-30 16:40:31 UTC
This is fixed, I can verify it. I've seen my Apple Bootstrap partition
with the anaconda from August 30th 2004
(anaconda-10.0.2-0.20040826115153.ppc.rpm)
