Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 28279
'partitions not on cylinder boundary' message displayed multiple times
Last modified: 2005-10-31 17:00:50 EST
One of my ide drives has solaris-x86 installed on it, so it has some funky
partitiontable setup. For that reason anaconda skips the partition giving
a message that 'Partition(s) is not on cylinder boundary'. This is all well
but the message shows up several times (three) which could be a bit
confusing. Adding which disk that has the strange partition table to the
error message would also be nice I think.
The message is mostly a red flag to let you know if we continue and try to
partition, bad things may happen. I believe the message does report the hard
drive device that has the problem (something like /dev/hda).
Do you mean to include the model # info, etc as well?
I believe that information is not included.
The message of interest is in anaconda-7.1-1.200101260101 (the package in fisher)
Could you please try the latest Wolverine beta?
We will address this in a future release.
Deferring until a future release.
Should work better now we are using parted.
