Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 240969
Anaconda defaults to ext2 partitioning of lvm partitions
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:05 EST
Description of problem:
I did a rawhide install on my laptop today (5/23) and in the lvm setup screens
if you select format the default partition type is ext2.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
anaconda-188.8.131.52-1.i386.rpm I think or whatever is in rawhide with the
kernel boot images dated May 22 05:10
Do not know. Only tried once so far. I can try it again if necessary.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start install
2. Select custom partitioning scheme
3. In the LVM config screen select format existing partition
Default partition type is ext2
Default should be ext3 to keep less knowledgable people from gettting confused.
I am not sure how important this really is but I thought I would report it
incase someone thinks it should be fixed before the release.
We weren't able to reproduce this in some testing last week, fwiw
I just tried again with the current rawhide and it now defaults to ext3.
Thanks for taking the time to look at this.
