Description Jeremy Katz 2001-08-04 14:20:29 EDT
Warning about not formatting a system partition shows up for non system
partitions (eg /data, /local) when it shouldn't
Comment 1 Glen Foster 2001-08-06 18:41:40 EDT
We (Red Hat) should try to fix this for the next release.
Comment 2 Michael Fulbright 2001-08-07 16:05:42 EDT
I've fixed this to be smarter about the directories it picks on, and I've
softened the message to say that UNLESS you have a reason to preserve data, its
better to format or bad things will happen.
