Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 408251
ext2 partition labels not found
Last modified: 2007-12-10 13:48:01 EST
Description of problem:
Partition layout editor does not detect labels for ext2 partitions, and so does
not allow specifying them to be mounted.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Don't know where to find version/release of anaconda.
This is the Fedora 8 Games LiveDVD spin.
Steps to Reproduce:
0. Have a Linux system containing one or more ext2 partitions with partition
labels, e.g. mount point /opt with label "hdf5=sdd5=/opt" .
1. Obtain and boot Fedora 8 Games LiveDVD and start the Install to Disk application.
2. Choose Custom Partition Layout when prompted, and press Next.
On the partition display, observe that any partition which contains an ext2
filesystem does not have a partition label listed. Therefore, you cannot
specify that it should be mounted anyplace. Also observe that ext3 filesystems
do have their labels shown.
Partition labels for both ext2 and ext3 filesystems should be shown, and it
should be possible to assign mount points to both ext2 and ext3 partitions.
Fixed in git. You should be able to work around by manually loading the ext2
module before starting the install
