Description of problem:
The Anaconda installer hangs when trying to install the filesystem.
This happens when I have given DiskDruid a mountpoint (for an existing
reiserfs-partition) like /home which will be generated one way or the
other. A mountpoint like /home/reiserfspart or /media/reiserfspart
works without problems.
So I can't keep my existing /home partition of my old SuSE
installation without editing /etc/fstab later. Furthermore there is no
warning or error message, so that you don't know what went wrong, when
the installer hangs, so it causes some headache.
Workaround is obiviously, to give a different mountpoint /home/oldhome
(or something else) and then edit the /etc/fstab accordingly.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a reiserfs Partition and put some files in there.
2. Give DiskDruid the mountpoint /home for this partition without
3. Proceed with the installation until the software tries create
Actual Results: The system hangs creating the filesystem.
Expected Results: The system should integrate the existing /home
partition or give a warning when trying to do so.
selinux=0 will work around. And selinux-policy packages >= 1.17.28-2
should work as well.
