Partitioning excerpt of kickstart file
Description of problem:
When using --start and --end to define the cylinders a partition should use on a harddrive anaconda fails with a message that --size is needed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Every time when a kickstart file contains part statements and they use the --start and --end flags.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a kickstart, include part statements using the --start and --end flags.
2. Do a network install pointing to the kickstart.
The install fails.
Harddrives should be partitioned according the kickstart file and installation should continue in an automated fashion.
The --start= and --end= parameters no longer do anything. The build of pykickstart that'll show up in F11 enforces this by printing a deprecation warning. The reason it's asking you for size information is that it's got nothing to go on for how the partition should be laid out.
