Description of problem:
Installer stops just before formatting reisers partitions. It work
good only if I choose ext3.
Tried 3 times with different install types.
BTW: is here some moderation? I ask because I send this bug fed days
ago and cannot find it in my bugs.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fc3test2 anaconda from original ISOs
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot first iso and type: linux reiserfs
2.Choose to create and format two reiserfs partitions (/ and /home)
Actual Results: Installer stops before formatting, the only right
choose is ext3 :)
Expected Results: Partitions formatter in reiserfs
Boot with selinux=0. SELinux policy was not allowing things to work
ok, do you mean that using reiserfs (not only formatting) I have to
disable selinux completely?
Yes, reiserfs doesn't support the xattrs required for SELinux
