Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 429784
anaconda created a new filesystem with the same label as existing
Last modified: 2008-08-02 19:40:36 EDT
Description of problem:
I have a dual-boot system running F7 on one VolumeGroup and rawhide on
another, with two separate /boot partitions. Anaconda labeled /dev/sda3 as
/boot even though /dev/sda2 already has this label from my F7 install.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install F7
2. Install rawhide-20080121 with a new /boot partition
3. Check labels of F7 vs. F9 /boot partitions
From rescue CD:
sh-3.2# e2label /dev/sda2
sh-3.2# e2label /dev/sda3
Candidates for fixing this are filed as Bug #364441, Bug #364451. I like the
idea of using UUIDs instead of LABELs.
We're going to switch to using UUIDs (I committed that today), but we still
shouldn't create duplicate labels. There was a bug around the time of the alpha
which could have led to duplicate labels and I think it should be resolved now.
Have you seen this more recently?
No response in over a month. Closing.
