Disk usage screen
Description of problem:
During a tex mode installation anaconda does not show the harddisks that are present in the system
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
anaconda 18.104.22.168 - 22.214.171.124
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start installion in text mode
2. Proceed to the disk usage screen
3. The screen is stretched over the entire video screen, and show no harddisks
4. Hit the 'OK' button and anaconda wil complain that it has no root filesystem defined.
Not possible to perform a text mode installation
Should be able to complete text mode installation
My system has two SATA harddisks present. When I switch to tty2 I do see the disks with the 'fdisk -l ' command. So the kernel actually sees the harddisks.
I attach a screenshot from the disk usage screen.
