Description Jos Vos 2000-08-01 12:18:19 UTC
When choosing to assign / to a 0x0b (WIndows) partition, it warns me that I
should not do that, that is has speed penalties (why?) and when I insist,
it crashes. I'll attach the Anaconda dump as a file to this bug.

Comment 2 Michael Fulbright 2000-08-01 22:23:39 UTC
Was the windows partition formatted with a FAT-style filesystem?

Comment 3 Jos Vos 2000-08-02 06:42:38 UTC
No.  It was actually an ext2 filesystem, but before installation I changed the
partition type to 0x0b (it was for some tests I was doing with the installer).

Comment 4 Glen Foster 2000-08-04 15:07:01 UTC
This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Winston Gold-release

Comment 5 Erik Troan 2000-08-10 19:35:27 UTC
You have to manually format DOS filesystems for loopback installs; we don't
format devices automatically.

Comment 6 Jos Vos 2000-08-11 06:52:24 UTC
What do you mean with "loopback installs"?  Whatever that means, at least
Anaconda shouldn't crash.
