Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 497390
autopart puts PReP and '/boot' on different disks
Last modified: 2013-09-02 02:35:18 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):
every autopart install
Steps to Reproduce:
While partitioning will work, yaboot is unable to boot in such a scenario.
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.
