Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 428019
Anaconda explodes immediately when faced with certain disk setups
Last modified: 2008-06-04 09:51:44 EDT
Description of problem:
I have an old box which has 0xFD (Autodetect raid) partitions for everything
(even /boot). The FC8 anaconda aborts (no backtrace) the moment it goes to stage
2. I've tested the RAM, the system runs other stuff just fine. If Anaconda can't
cope with such a configuration then it should say so, and it should survive so
you can do a new install.
I still have the disks intact (for a day or two at most as I need to reconf this
box to do devel work) so let me know what you need in further info.
Have you been able to reproduce this error with F9?
As stated I had them reserved for a couple of days but got no response. The test
case is long gone
