Last modified: 2009-04-16 09:39:30 EDT
Description of problem:
Anaconda starts resizing the only partition, which is in ntfs, but then brings up a dialog with installation falled and offers to save the attached filed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 11 Snap 1
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have a partition with ntfs
2. Ask anakonda to resize it (32000 to 24000MB)
"Installation failed" dialog
Resize and continue installation
Created attachment 339700 [details]
Error file which the dialog proposed to save
Here's the real problem:
ERROR(95): Opening '/dev/sda2' as NTFS failed: Operationen er ikke understøttet
The NTFS journal file is unclean. Please shutdown Windows properly before
using this software! Note, if you have run chkdsk previously then boot
Windows again which will automatically initialize the journal correctly.
The next build of anaconda will not traceback here, so you'll be able to do whatever is required in Windows and then retry resizing without getting the annoying traceback dialog.
