Description david d zuhn 2004-10-14 12:47:29 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7)

Description of problem:
The /root/anaconda-ks.cfg as written by the installer during a manual
installation of FC3T3 isn't syntactically correct for use during a
real install.

In particular, the part commands as written do not have a --size
option, just --grow.  Yet, when installing with this file, anaconda
will die because of this missing option.

I can make arguments for two possible ways to resolve this.  

First, write an appropriate --size argument that matches the current
hardware when creating the file during an install.  

Second, when --grow is provided on a command line, --size should be
optional.  In this case, the partition should use all available space.
 When --size is provided with --grow, the argument provides the
minimum size the partition should be.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install FC3t3
2. use created /root/anaconda-ks.cfg for an installation

Actual Results:  Installation dies, due to missing argument.  It's
kind of an ugly death, involving python tracebacks instead of human
readable error messages.

Expected Results:  The same installation I just performed should be
performed again.

The KS file as created during my manual installation

I used this file as the basis for my automatic installation ks file.  I
uncommented the clearpart, part, volgroup, and logvol commands.
