Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 427118
on Alpha, autopart.py needs to leave space for the bootstrap
Last modified: 2007-12-31 19:07:52 EST
Description of problem:
On Alpha, space (1M or more) needs to be left unused at the start of the
disk when partition is done, as space for the bootstrap (aboot).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. allow anaconda to partition a BSD disk
2. let the bootloader aboot be installed
Errors occur when there is no space for the bootstrap to be written.
Enough space to be left by the autopartitioner for aboot to be installed.
Attached is a patch to fix the problem.

on Alpha, leave some space for the bootstrap install
Ermm, this is already included in HEAD (Oliver sent us a set of patches for
Alpha support). And given that alpha isn't a supported arch for Fedora 8, we're
not likely to go back and build a new anaconda.
