Description Tuan Nguyen 2007-04-08 12:08:19 EDT
Description of problem:

I have 4 primary partitions, 2 for Windows, 3rd for Fedora2 (hda3 ; type
identifier 0x83) and 4th for Solaris10 (hda4 ; 0xBF - see below)

When I try (had try 3 times) to install Fedora6 on hda3, the install stops with
"parted exception on hda4" after  I was finished with choosing the different
packages. The error can be found on the attached file.

Is this because the new type identifier from Sun?

NB: the DVD checksum is OK, the linux checkmedia is OK too.
NB2: the type identifier of Solaris is changed by Sun from 0x82 (same as linux
swap) to 0xBF for Solaris10 (http://www.sun.com/blueprints/0905/819-2889.pdf)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
DVD fedora 6

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. you must have a Solaris10 on your disk
2. boot from DVD, "linux" or "linux text"
dump from install:
13:09:53 INFO    : anaconda.methodstr = cdrom://hdc:/mnt/source 0
13:09:53 INFO    : moving (1) to step enablefilesystems
13:09:56 CRITICAL: parted exception: Error: Error informing the kernel about
modifications to partition /dev/hda4 -- Device or resource busy.  This means
Linux won't know about any changes you made to /dev/hda4 until you reboot -- so
you shouldn't mount it or use it in any way before rebooting.

I forgot to write that the PC rebooted after I press the "done" button, I had
tried 3 times I got the same error.
Now I get back to fedora2 (I had "kino" working there), thanks to the
"trueimage" I made just before install fedora6.
