Description Bryan Leopard 2001-08-06 21:29:47 UTC
PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: During the disk partition setup, once a partition 
method is selected, a message pops up stating:  "Unable to open /tmp/sda - 
unrecognized disk label."  Then the only option is to cancel, but it will 
proceed to the next message (asking to initialize the hard drives).  This 
message box is not needed because the user has no choice but to initialize 
all the available drives.     	

Server: ML350
ROM Date: 7/27/01
OS: RedHat 7.2 Beta 3 

STEPS TO CREATE THE PROBLEM:
1.  On a clean system, start a new installation.
2.  At the Disk Partitioning Setup screen, select a method to partition 
the hard drives.  
     -  I selected a manual partition with disk druid.
3.  Notice the pop up message stating:  "Unable to open /tmp/sda - 
unrecognized disk label."

ANY WORK-AROUND/SOLUTIONS:  Remove this pop up message.  The next message 
(Drive Initialization) should be sufficient for the user.

Matt just committed a change to CVS to do just that.
