cannot select ext2/ext3 is fdisk used
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:34:27 EDT
Description of Problem:
cannot select whether ext2 or ext3 partition is being defined ... only ext3.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. do install
2. select fdisk partitioning
Please post more details - is this a new or a pre-existing partition you were
The Summary line is more or less correct (is == if) but the inner text is not.
If fdisk is used to define a new partition and the the next panel is selected,
the new partition does not have a "filetype". If you try to edit that
partition, a popup message is generate: "You cannot edit partitions without a
filetype". In that panel, if you delete and then "reallocate" the partition,
you can set the filetype but you cannot edit an existing partition and
set/change the filetype.
I suspect this has something to do with looking into a partition to see if the
"83" partition is ext3.
We are fixing this issue (its related to bug 47001).
