Description of problem:
During text install of fc devel (dated jan 16 2006) to an IBM JS20 (ppc64
blade), after selecting the default parition, I am getting the following
The following warnings exist with
your requested partition scheme.
Your PPC PReP Boot partition is less
than 2 megabytes which is lower than
recommended for a normal Fedora Core
Would you like to continue with your
requested partitioning scheme?
There were partitions on the device (hda) before I started the install (once, RHEL4 or such, and this time, I am installing on top of FC devel).
The system booted OK, but it should not complain about its default partition layout :-(
During VNC install of this same image, I got a black screen with black
text for (I assume) this same warning. I ran a text install this time to
see if anything was actually being displayed.
The partition information is displayed as:
Device Start End Size Type Mount Point
VG VolGroup00 38016M VolGroup
LV LogVol00 36032M ext3 /
LV LogVol01 1984M swap
hda1 1 1 0M PPC PReP B
Free space 1 1 7M Free space
hda2 2 13 94M ext3 /boot
hda3 14 4864 38052M physical v
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install to ppc64 system.
2. Use default partitioning.
3. Make money
Actual Results: Got a warning
Expected Results: No warning expected
