Description Shinya Narahara 2001-07-09 02:00:05 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.75 [ja] (WinNT; U)

Description of problem:
We can't make fixed partitions by using kickstart parameter "part".
The option --onprimary and --asprimary doesn't work well.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Make kickstart file on floppy.
2.Assign sda1 as /boot/efi, sda2 as swap, and sda3 as /. The descriptions are:
        part /boot/efi --size 256M   --ondisk sda --onprimary 1 --type=6
        part swap       --size 2047M --ondisk sda --onprimary 2
        part /            --size 4096M --ondisk sda --onprimary 3
3. Install redhat Linux by using the file above.

Actual Results:  Actual partitions are:
/boot/efi     /dev/sda1
swap           /dev/sda2
/                /dev/sda5

Expected Results:  Expected partitions are:
/boot/efi     /dev/sda1
swap           /dev/sda2
/                /dev/sda3

Additional info:

In generally, this actual results aren't very bad, because partitions are made
and mounted normally.
But especially for DAC960(/dev/rd/c0d0p#), as you know dac960 doesn't have
enough partitions(max is 7), we really wanna make them as we assign.

We have changed the partitioning section of the installer, so this should not be
a problem with future releases.  Thank you for your report.
