Anaconda log file (/tmp/anaconda.log)

Description of problem:
I tried to install F11beta with / on /dev/sda2.  Since I have only one partition for this, I tried to format / as ext3.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot F11beta livecd (Gnome)
2. Start installer, selecting ext3 for /
3. Install proceeds, then fails at the end because / was formatted ext4 rather than ext3
Actual results:
Incomplete installation

Expected results:
Complete installation

Comment 1 Jesse Keating 2009-03-31 18:24:37 EDT
Due to the way that live installs work, you get the filesystem that the live image itself is, which in F11's case, ext4.  The UI should make this more obvious though.
Comment 2 Hezekiah M. Carty 2009-03-31 20:42:08 EDT
Dies this mean that it is impossible to install the beta from the LiveCD without a separate /boot partition?
Comment 3 Jesse Keating 2009-04-01 02:02:18 EDT
That would be my assumption.
Comment 4 Jeremy Katz 2009-04-01 16:09:13 EDT
Correct, you'll need a /boot to do an install from livecd.
