Description Liam Li 2009-09-29 10:54:26 UTC
Description of problem:

install f12 Beta TC on ppc platform all with default settings, we can see that /boot partition is ext3, but actually f12 support ext4,if we set /boot partition to ext4 by customization,system works well.So we should set the default ext3 to ext4
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

anaconda 12.30
How reproducible:

Comment 1 Chris Lumens 2009-09-29 14:03:38 UTC
Does adding updates=http://clumens.fedorapeople.org/526219.img allow you to (1) have /boot on ext4, and (2) boot properly?  I do not know if yaboot actually supports ext4 or not.

Comment 2 James Laska 2009-09-29 14:55:51 UTC
Using the updates.img provided, my system defaulted to '/boot' as ext4 and booted successfully.

# mount
/dev/mapper/vg_ibm505lp1-lv_root on / type ext4 (rw)
/dev/sda2 on /boot type ext4 (rw)

Thanks for testing.  This will be fixed in the next build of anaconda.
