Description Bryan Kearney 2008-10-07 12:24:34 EDT
Description of problem:

partition commands with no --fstype or --ondisk  throws an ugly stack trace (see below). At a minimum, this should be an easy to debug error. Best case is that the tool would calculate the correct size and disk option to be used.

How reproducible:

Run the appliance creator with a kickstart file with the following line:

part / --size 500 

See the stack trace:

Warning: The kernel was unable to re-read the partition table on /dev/loop2 (Invalid argument).  This means Linux won't know anything about the modifications you made until you reboot.  You should reboot your computer before doing anything with /dev/loop2.
