Description Chris Lumens 2009-07-28 19:38:06 EDT
Today I did an installation of F11 onto a machine with > 300 LUNs visible and available for use.  I picked the defaults on the parttype screen and clicked next.  After this, I had enough time to talk for a while, go down the hall for a drink, come back, and see that it was still not done.  tty4 showed that the storage.log was constantly being written to.

I did two tests - one with clicking next to go to the custom partitioning screen, and one with just accepting the defaults.  The same behavior was observed each time.  Therefore, I believe this is more than just UI slowness but is the underlying autopart algorithm.

I have the log files, but they're dozens of megs so I'd rather not attach to a bug.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 13 development cycle.
Changing version to '13'.

Jeff - this is the bug I was hoping to take a look at on the machine down in the lab with 88 disks visible.
