xfs_admin cannot mount xfs partition at install
Last modified: 2009-02-16 15:32:44 EST
Description of problem:
I have xfs partitions with data in them. At installation where I choose mount points, I can select and attribute mounts to my xfs partitions. When the install starts, it blocks at the moment it tries to mount or do something with the xfs partitions. See attached install log.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Under VirtualBox attach a xfs partition to the VM
2. Start Fedora iso. Select a mount point, like /home to a xfs partition
3. Launch installation, it will bug.
Halts installation and exits installer.
XFS partitions should be supported and mounted to the mount points without halting installation.
This is under VirtualBox 2.0.4 with 64-Bits Fedora. I had the same problem in real life with Fedora 9 full release and 32-Bits arch.

xfs error during installation
This should be fixed in the next build of anaconda.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.
