hd patitions not detected correctly during graphical installation
Last modified: 2008-08-04 10:40:36 EDT
Description of problem:
I'm installing the Fedora-9-Preview-i386-DVD, I had another linux distro and
replacing it. The destination hd was good partitioned (a hdb1 = 2Gb (swap),
hdb2= 30GB (/) and hdb3,hdb4 dividing the rest of the free space.
Installing Fedora graphically all such partitions results unabailable: it
furnish me just hdb1: /boot (200Mb) and hdb2: the rest of free space
on the hd. It sounded me unusual and I've repeated the installation for 4-5
times but still this unusual disk partitions detection.
I've than repeated the installation, this time using the text mode .. this way
it detects existing partitions good.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.choose the graphical installation .. and when have to choose the
boot,swap,home partitions I've the described problems
2.choosing the text mode installation all existing partitions are showed correctly
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
Does the issue persist in the final release?
