Description of problem:
During setup of FC4 on PPC (new Powerbook 12") Disk Druid failed and took down the installer with it. The cause was a 128M Apple partition that was unnamed. Named the 128M Apple partition with parted and things went smoothly. OSX install is Tiger (10.4). Disk Druid appeared to work, but Anaconda died after package selection. Something about a disk with "NoName" was in the Python traceback, so...
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Install FC4 PPC on Mac with OSX 10.4 installed. By default Tiger does not name the 128M Apple boot(?) partition.
Actual Results: Anaconda barfed
Expected Results: FC4 install
This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.
Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?
requested by Jams Antill
This should be fixed in a later release of Fedora, due to improvements in both
anaconda and parted.
