Description Søren Sandmann Pedersen 2006-06-03 20:46:57 UTC
The system is an x86-64 with various RHELs and Fedoras installed on it. I put in

The installer then proceeded to format the entire harddisk without ever asking
me anything.

I'm hoping I missed something obvious, but this is what I think happened.
The install.log and install.log.syslog files are available if you need them.

The files can't hurt.  Also, /var/log/anaconda*.

Comment 2 Søren Sandmann Pedersen 2006-06-05 17:08:47 UTC
The /var/log/anaconda* files are gone now, but I'll attach the other files.

later releases of Fedora, please feel free to reopen this bug report.
