Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 17655
Disk Druid limts root / partition to 500Mbytes
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:58 EDT
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.
Same problem found on Red Hat 6.2
Disk Druid is part of the installer, anaconda. Reassigning to the "anaconda"
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.
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 ... :(
please reopen if this is still a problem with the latest alpha release candidate
