Description Daniel Resare 2001-02-19 06:21:43 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.
Comment 1 Michael Fulbright 2001-02-21 15:51:08 EST
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?
Comment 2 Daniel Resare 2001-02-23 04:54:50 EST
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?
Comment 4 Michael Fulbright 2001-04-03 19:07:09 EDT
We will address this in a future release.
Comment 5 Michael Fulbright 2001-04-04 10:30:09 EDT
Deferring until a future release.
Comment 6 Michael Fulbright 2001-09-17 15:40:00 EDT
Should work better now we are using parted.
