Traceback from anaconda when partitioning with disk-druid (9.10 KB, text/plain)

Description Inger Karin Haarbye 2001-07-28 17:34:35 UTC
Description of Problem:
I had 3 primary partitions and 7 more on logical partition before
installation. I backed up everything I needed, to repartition the disk.
Deleted all partitions exept /dev/hda1 and /dev/hda2 - starting at the last
partition on disk. 
Creation of /dev/hda3 was OK. Forced to be primary. 
I then wanted 5 new partitions on a logical partition. When trying to
create the 4. partition, I got the option to select how many cylindres, but
there was no option to create a logical partition. 
So I thought maybe the partition would be logical at default if I didn't
choose the "force primary"-option. I selected to create from cylinder 347
(first "free" cylinder) to 730. (Last is 2386).

I got the following error message:
Assertion (part->num != -1) at disk.c:327
in function_partition_align () failed.

Traceback was dumped to floppy.

How Reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Selecting Custom installation
2. Partitioning with disk-druid
3. Deleting all partitions but the to first (primary).
4. Trying to create new partitions with disk-druid.

Actual Results:
Error-message, traceback (attachment)

Expected Results:
3 primary partitions and 5 logical (on extended)

Is this a parted problem?

Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2001-07-29 04:32:24 UTC
Dr Mike hit this Tuesday evening when we were doing some testing, but didn't get
around to looking at it long enough to fix it...  not a parted problem though.
