Created attachment 106668 [details]
anaconda's dump when / was pre-mkfsed

Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2004-11-15 15:18:36 UTC
Do the devices have a label previously on them?

Comment 4 Bernhard Erdmann 2004-11-15 15:28:04 UTC
no, no label has been given, just "mkfs.xfs /dev/sda4"

Comment 5 Jeremy Katz 2004-11-15 16:04:11 UTC
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)
