Description Burt Holzman 2000-12-27 19:11:58 EST
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 18:05:54 EST
Is this in the GUI or TUI version of the install?
Comment 2 Burt Holzman 2001-01-09 18:24:02 EST
This is with the GUI install.
Comment 3 Michael Fulbright 2001-02-08 15:33:28 EST
Will postpone to future release.
Comment 4 Jeremy Katz 2001-09-10 17:10:49 EDT
This is handled better in Roswell, the beta for the next release of Red Hat Linux.
