Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora Core 3 - Final of 8 Nov 2004
Steps to Reproduce:
1.boot from CD and type : linux reiserfs
2.Create Logical Vol / /usr /home /opt /var with reiserfs
3.Choose your product to install shortly after it will crash
I tried it a couple of time, allways same problem
Actual Results: Installer crash - reboot
Expected Results: Should create reiser filesystem and proceed with
Would love to use ext3 if I could increase the LV size while
filesystem is mounted (reiserfs, xfs, jfs have all that)
If you use the ext3 filesystem it work.
But with reiserfs filesystem it cras when trying to create the lv
(at the lvcreate command)
ext3 in FC3 has online resize support.
reiserfs isn't supported, which is part of why you have to go through
hoops to use it.
If you provide the full dump you received, I'll try to take a look at
it as time allows.
