Description Dan Williams 2004-09-30 14:50:26 EDT
Dialog pops up on the Automatic Partitioning screen.  I have chosen to
install a new copy of Fedora (overwriting my previous FC2 installation
on the drive), and a Workstation install.

1) select "Remove all partitions on this system"
2) hit Next (hda2 is selected to be destroyed)
3) Error Partitioning dialog
Could not allocate requested partitioins
Unsatisfied partition request
New Part Request -- mountpoint: None uniqueID: 5
type: physical volume (LVM)  format: 1  badblocks: None
device: None drive: ['hda']  primary: None
size: 0  grow: 1  maxsize: None
start: None end: None  migrate: None  origfstype: None
4) Hit OK
5) Automatic Partitioning Errors
You have not defined a root partition (/) which is required for
installation of Fedora Core to continue.  This can happen if there is
not enough space on your hard drive for installation...
6) Hit OK
7) Hit Next again
8) Anaconda traceback

9) Installation die
