Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2004-11-15 10:18:36 EST
Do the devices have a label previously on them?
Comment 4 Bernhard Erdmann 2004-11-15 10:28:04 EST
no, no label has been given, just "mkfs.xfs /dev/sda4"
Comment 5 Jeremy Katz 2004-11-15 11:04:11 EST
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)
