Description Alexander Todorov 2008-10-02 08:40:26 EDT
Created attachment 319220 [details]
/dev/sdb1 is shown as ext3

Description of problem:
Identification of previously existing ext4dev partitions is not consistent with the table at:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=444527#c21


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
anaconda-11.1.2.133-1

How reproducible:
always (on ia64, haven't tested other arch)

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install a system with ext4dev partition(s) - /dev/sdb1 ext4dev /home
2. verify machine is able to boot
3. initiate second install with 'ext4' keyword on boot cmd line
4. select custom partitioning
  
Actual results:
anaconda shows ext4dev partition as ext3

Expected results:
anaconda will show the partition as ext4dev

Additional info:

from the first install:

[root@roentgen ~]# dumpe4fs /dev/sdb1  | grep flags
dumpe4fs 1.41.1 (01-Sep-2008)
Filesystem flags:         signed_directory_hash test_filesystem 

From stage2 of second install:
# cat /proc/filesystems  | grep ext4
        ext4dev
