Description David Woodhouse 2006-09-28 07:07:42 EDT
fc6 install on pSeries with the following partitioning:

 - PReP boot
 - 1GiB swap
 - ext3 rootfs

The installer doesn't let me -- it says there's no boot partition close enough
to the beginning of the disk for OpenFirmware. That's not true -- the above
scheme would work fine.
Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2006-09-28 10:52:37 EDT
Per IBM (long ago, but nevertheless), the /boot bits need to be below 4G and so
anaconda enforces that.  It's easy to not have that check, but I'm not going to
pull it unless we are 110% sure that it won't break things.
Comment 2 David Woodhouse 2006-09-28 11:01:02 EDT
OK, that makes a certain amount of sense -- but can we have the message tell us
that? (the 4GiB bit).
Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2006-09-28 11:04:53 EDT
Changing at this point breaks all the translations -- we can improve the message
