Description of problem:
I have installed a machine from Roswell CDs just fine. I then took the
generated kickstart config file (in /root/), added my usual stuff to the
%post section and tried a Kickstart install of the very same machine. The
error popping up is:
Could not allocate requested partitions:
Partitioning failed: Could not allocate
Here is the section from my ks.cfg file which is disk related:
part / --fstype ext3 --size 2048
part swap --size 2048
part /var --fstype ext3 --size 1024
part /usr/vice/cache --fstype ext3 --size 1024
part /tmp --fstype ext3 --grow
There are no more information on the other virtual console windows.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. make a ks.cfg with above mentioned disk partition schema
2. start Kickstart (I am using PXE and DHCP)
Actual Results: A window with above mentioned disk partition error pops
Expected Results: It should just partition the disk.
Specify a base size for the /tmp partition to grow from and it will work. Dupe
of something else, current CVS gives a better error for this case
Ok, that works.
I would like to resubmit this as a documentation bug!
