Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 40813
Strange behaviour of DiskDruid
Last modified: 2005-10-31 17:00:50 EST
Description of Problem:
Both in text and graphic installer, the 6.4 GB Quantum harddisk (784/255/63)
leaves 133 MB untouchable:
hda1 305 DOS>=32
hda5 1145 Linux (/home)
hda6 30/31 Linux (/boot)
hda7 1200 DOS>=32
hda8 300/305 swap
for hda9 (/) whatever I use (text/graphic),"use remaining space" will
result in 3027 MB. With a result of "6016 MB used, 133 MB free".
Even filling in any number above 3027 (3028!) manually, will result in a
fail ("no space available"), though there *are* 133 MB free; shown in the
"thermometer" and in the table.
The overall space on the harddisk are 6149 MB; so the calculation is done
correctly by the installer.
Thus, why doesn't it permit to use the whole harddisk?
Steps to Reproduce:
2. (see above)
