Description Burt Holzman 2000-12-28 00:11:58 UTC
If you elect to use fdisk to partition your disk, and do not assign
a swap partition, when disk druid is then run to assign mount points,
it will not let the user proceed to the next menu.  Perhaps a note
in the help that a swap partition must be assigned, or some other 
error message would be appropriate?

Comment 1 Michael Fulbright 2001-01-09 23:05:54 UTC
Is this in the GUI or TUI version of the install?

Comment 2 Burt Holzman 2001-01-09 23:24:02 UTC
This is with the GUI install.


Comment 3 Michael Fulbright 2001-02-08 20:33:28 UTC
Will postpone to future release.

Comment 4 Jeremy Katz 2001-09-10 21:10:49 UTC
This is handled better in Roswell, the beta for the next release of Red Hat Linux.
