Description James Laska 2009-04-23 13:06:42 EDT
Description of problem:
On an IBM power5 system, autopart puts the PReP and '/boot' partitions on different disk.  Due to a yaboot limitation (I think), these partitions must exist on the same disk.

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

How reproducible:
every autopart install

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:
While partitioning will work, yaboot is unable to boot in such a scenario.

Expected results:
In F10 and RHEL5, PReP and '/boot' are always on the same disk (typically sda1 and sda2).

This should be fixed in the next build of anaconda.  Thanks for the bug report.

Actually, I tested this on ppc as well, so moving to CLOSED.
