Description George R. Goffe 2008-04-08 00:25:58 UTC
Description of problem:

I enter my partitions the way I want them and in the order I want them but there
is a sort in anaconda that changes the order to alphabetical.

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

All rhel versions and fedora core versions

How reproducible:

happens EVERY time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. make a ks.cfg file
2. put partitions in the order you want them to be
3. save the ks.cfg file WHICH shows the order you requested
4. do a kickstart with this config file
5. observe the partitions as they are laid out now (sorted)
Actual results:

Partitions sorted alphabetically

Expected results:

partitions laid out as specified in the ks.cfg file.

Comment 1 George R. Goffe 2008-04-08 00:26:55 UTC
Here's the partition layout as specified by my ks.cfg file:

### Partition our hard disks.
clearpart --all --initlabel 
part /boot --fstype ext3 --size=1024
part / --fstype ext3 --size=1024
part swap --fstype swap --size=12288
part /var --fstype ext3 --size=2048
part /opt --fstype ext3 --size=3072
part /usr --fstype ext3 --size=17408
part /export/home --fstype ext3 --size=4096 --grow
