Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 442110
partition writing is before bootloader config
Last modified: 2014-03-16 23:13:56 EDT
Description of problem:
Not sure why it needs to be, that doesn't take that much memory.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
It doesn't really look like we can move the bootloader steps before the
partition writing steps. The bootloader config sets are full of code like this:
bootDev = anaconda.id.fsset.getEntryByMountPoint("/")
if not bootDev:
bootDev = anaconda.id.fsset.getEntryByMountPoint("/boot")
part = partedUtils.get_partition_by_name(anaconda.id.diskset.disks,
Which is going to want partitions written to the disk so we'll be able to detect
them and know which choices to offer. Moving these steps earlier would be nice
because we'd be able to get rid of the inability to go back, but I don't think
it's possible with the current code structure.
