Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 502422
"Shrink other filesystem" GUI shows no useful info on failure
Last modified: 2010-06-28 08:41:58 EDT
Description of problem:
When the NTFS shrink procedure fails, it does so without informing the user of the reason and steps to correct, information which is available from the backend.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have an "unclean" NTFS partition (reset Windows or whatever).
2. Insert Fedora 11 Preview DVD, go through initial steps for new install.
2. Choose "shrink existing filesystem".
3. Select the NTFS partition and gave new size (i.e. from 76G to 45G).
4. No changes to suggested Linux partitions, continue, popup informs of resizing operation
Popup says "there was an error encountered resizing device".
The Details link clarifies that with: "resize failed: 1".
Some information about what can be done to correct this problem.
CTRL-ALT-F5 shows the output from the backend:
allocation table inconsistency
boot Windows and run chkdsk /f
then reboot twice.
Extended record needed (1040>1024), not yet supported!
Please try to free less space.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
This message is a reminder that Fedora 11 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 11. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '11'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 11's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 11 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 11 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2010-06-25. Fedora 11 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
