Description of problem:

anaconda lets me try to encrypt /boot. It throws an error later if I try to
proceed with that partitioning, but it should probably disallow it to start with.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Then again, we allow you to select xfs, etc. there as well and only bounce you
Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2008-01-21 16:12:22 EST
Yeah, this is generally how we do the checking.  While for /boot we could
disallow early, then people would want the same for /.  But doing it for / is a
lot less obvious as you can add / and then add /boot afterwards.  So this way
we're consistent overall.
