Anaconda force / partition to be ext3 instead of ext2
Last modified: 2008-12-01 11:59:53 EST
Description of problem:
When installing F10 on a fresh new computer using a livecd, automatic partitioning creates the following partitions :
- /boot, in ext3
LVM contains :
- /, ext3
Although I change type of / to ext2, it is ignored: after installing, I can see / is a ext3 partition.
How reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Change /boot and / partition types to ext2
2. Install Fedora from LiveCD
3. Run newly installed Fedora
/boot is changed to ext2, but / is not.
/boot and / are changed to ext2.
Computer is an Acer Aspire One with 8Go SSD disk. On these disks, using ext3 is not a good idea, so ext2 is prefered.
Problem occurs with KDE and GNOME F10 livecd. Cannot try with DVD version.
Same problem occurs when using two primary partitions, without LVM.
This is because with the live install, we're copying over the image from the live images which is an ext3 image. There's really not anything that we can do with the way we do installs
