Description of problem:
The machine currently has slackware installed with all filesystems except
when using diskdruid to assingn the partitions to a filesystem this
/dev/hda1 which is ext2 now went ok justs selected the device typed '/' and
set filesystem options to reformat it to ext3.
the selecting /dev/hda2 as swap, no problems
then /dev/hda3 as /var (that currently is reiserfs) you can't enter a
mountpoint for it because it's not a "known" filesystem so you have
to get to the filesystem options dialog to tell anaconda to reformat it
using ext2 or ext3, when you hit enter at the button the installer crashed.
all this was done using the text based installer in expert mode
and because i don't want to change the on-disk partitions i didn't delete
add any, I just wanted to reassign the existing ones to a filesystem and
Steps to Reproduce:
oh, please see description
Actual Results: Installer crashed
Expected Results: Installer popps up with the filesystem options dialaog.
workaround: remove all on-disk partitions, reboot.
create new disk partitions and filesystems so that
anaconda doesn't find any reiserfs filesystems.
is there a traceback? if so, save it to a disk and upload it please.
