Description Jay Estabrook 2007-12-31 18:19:02 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):

anaconda-11.3.0.50-2


How reproducible:

Every time.


Steps to Reproduce: 
1. allow anaconda to partition a BSD disk
2. let the bootloader aboot be installed
3.
  
Actual results:

Errors occur when there is no space for the bootstrap to be written.


Expected results:

Enough space to be left by the autopartitioner for aboot to be installed.


Additional info:

Attached is a patch to fix the problem.

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.
