Description Jonathan Blandford 2009-04-12 17:56:38 EDT
I created an install with a root partition of type ext3.  Despite this, anaconda seems to have created the partition as ext4.  When anaconda tried to mount it later during the install, it suffered a fatal error and exited.  Repeating the install with ext4 was successful.

This was with F11 Snapshot 1 and anaconda- off the Desktop Live CD

Comment 3 Jonathan Blandford 2009-04-13 11:07:20 EDT

Comment 4 Chris Lumens 2009-04-13 11:08:53 EDT
Apparently not.  We're getting reports of it piling up on another bug too.
