Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 543777
Anaconda cannot continue when a new partition is created with empty mount point
Last modified: 2009-12-06 10:17:57 EST
Description of problem:
During install, I choose "Custom Layout" to create my own partition scheme. On one of the partition I created, I didn't assign any mount point. Anaconda showed a dialog box of something related to no mount point (can't remember exactly), went through the whole saving debug log, and then quit.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. During install choose "Custom Layout" for creating partition
2. Create a partition for /, /home, and another one without assigning mount point
Anaconda cannot continue the install process
Anaconda continue the install process.
Debug log attached.
Can you please attach traceback? You can do it using exception dialog that - as I understood from your description - appears in the point of failure.

For some reason my previous attachment showed up as binary, trying again by selecting plain text manually.
I am sorry I thought I had attached this traceback when I initially reported the bug. I must have done something wrong and it didn't go through. If this is not what you ask for please let me know and I'll try to get the right one. Thank you.
