Description harry.heinisch 2000-09-18 19:00:27 UTC
When creating 2 partitions, root "/" and swap, it appears that Disk Druid 
will not allow you to set root to the whole disk.It limits you to 
500MBytes, forcing the user to add another partition /usr which can be set 
to use the whole disk.


Comment 1 harry.heinisch 2000-09-18 19:08:59 UTC
Same problem found on Red Hat 6.2


Comment 2 Nalin Dahyabhai 2000-09-18 20:42:36 UTC
Disk Druid is part of the installer, anaconda.  Reassigning to the "anaconda"

Comment 3 Michael Fulbright 2000-09-19 21:59:38 UTC
What is the geometry of the disk in question?

Whatever partition that /boot resides on can only occupy up to the 1024 limit
imposed by LILO.

Comment 4 Gene Czarcinski 2000-09-20 20:37:53 UTC
I successfully created and installed beta4 in a 2GB and (separately) a 3GB
system.  The disks are 9GB scsi.

are you still seeing this problem with the recent alpha release candidate ...?
we have not seen this issue in our internal testing ... :(

Comment 6 Brock Organ 2000-10-18 13:26:05 UTC
please reopen if this is still a problem with the latest alpha release candidate
