Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 15116
anaconda wants to write unchanged partition tables to disk unnecessarily
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:57 EDT
Cyrix MediaGX with 32Mb of RAM and a very large
HD which I have partitioned to triple-boot between different
flavours of Linux..
Decided to install pinstripe over the top of the last beta
to replace it. Used disk druid, selected the partitions to
use for /boot and / - it already spotted the swap. I changed
nothing from its previous set up. hda3 was still /boot and
hda9 was still /.
Next screen: "you have not much memory in your machine.
I want to turn on swap. "[Think bubble: 32Mbs? Fair enough...]
"To do that, I need to write the partition table to disk. Is that okay?"
[Think bubble: huh?]
Why? Why does it need to rewrite the partition table? It
I thought I had put this into bugzilla before but I can't
find it. Sorry.
It should not cause problems since the partition table is the same.
