Description Kambiz Aghaiepour 2001-09-04 16:31:39 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.2-2 i686)

Description of problem:
Installing off the latest link from porkchop (re0831.0, i.e. latest-i386
symlink) over NFS, X based install, on Netfinity 5000 with two SCSI drives,
I hand created the partitions such that I had :

/dev/sda
   /dev/sda1  48mb   raid
   /dev/sda2  512mb  raid
   /dev/sda3  8+ gb   raid

/dev/sdb
   /dev/sdb1  48mb   raid
   /dev/sdb2  512mb  raid
   /dev/sdb3  8+ gb   raid

RAID Device 0 ext3     /      (sda3,sdb3)
RAID Device 1 swap           (sda2,sdb2)
RAID Device 2 ext3    /boot  (sda1,sdb1)

The problem is that in the summary of filesystems to be created, the swap
device has "/" under the mount point.  In other words:

Device              start    end   Size    Type    Mount Point    Format
Raid Device 0                      8118    ext3            /            YES
Raid Device 1                      509      swap          /             YES
Raid Device 2                      47        ext3           /boot       
YES

Comment 1 Michael Fulbright 2001-09-05 12:13:02 EDT
Did the install work?
Comment 2 Michael Fulbright 2001-09-05 14:38:45 EDT
Fixed - thanks for catching this!

Comment 3 Kambiz Aghaiepour 2001-09-05 15:00:07 EDT
Cool. No problem.  Yes, the install does work without a glitch. It just may be
confusing to see the swap dev seemingly mounted on /.  Thanks.
