Anaconda doesn't recognize reiserfs partitions
Last modified: 2009-08-19 21:16:20 EDT
Description of problem:
Anaconda does not recognize existing reiserfs partitions
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to install Fedora rawhide on a system with existing reiserfs partitions
2. Notice that all such partitions show up as unknown
3. Wait until system is installed to hand-edit fstab
reiserfs is still supported in the kernel. Anaconda ought to recognize it and deal with it.
We removed reiserfs support when we rewrote the storage code. I can't say it'll be high priority, but I'll work up a patch.
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:
A fix for this has been committed to the git repository and will appear in anaconda-12.17-1.
