anaconda fails to use pre-mkfsed filesystem
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:54 EST
Description of problem:
I tried to install FC3 onto filesystems (/ and /boot) already
mkfs.xfsed. anaconda died
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. mkfs.xfs /dev/sda4; mkfs.xfs /dev/sdb1
2. install FC3, use /dev/sda4 for / and /dev/sdb1 for /boot
installation of FC3
if the same devices are mkfs.xfsed by anaconda, installation continues
Created attachment 106667 [details]
anaconda's dump when / and /boot were pre-mkfsed
Created attachment 106668 [details]
anaconda's dump when / was pre-mkfsed
Do the devices have a label previously on them?
no, no label has been given, just "mkfs.xfs /dev/sda4"
Can you manually add a label to the filesystem?
(Note that the XFS support in anaconda is unofficial and not really
supported; it's based almost completely on patches that have been
submitted from external reporters)
