Description of problem:
When upgrading using graphical install RH7.2 (shrink-wrap) installer
decides I need more swap so it suggests adding a swapfile of 379MB and
takes me to a screen where I can select size and partition for the new
swapfile. I get the size box but only the column headers for the patition
list appear so I cannot select a partition and threrefore cannot create a
HPT366 controller on BP6 motherboard with dual celeron CPUS.
All Linux filesystems are reiserfs, no ext
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Begin graphical 7.2 upgrade on 7.0 system with hpt366 controller and
reiserfs with a small amount of swap installed (I have 132MB on a 256MB system)
2.Take defaults and eventually you will be given the screen described above.
[ I only attempted to reprodce this once ]
I'll try to reproduce this tomorrow on my test machine.
Hmm...I can't reproduce this, but my filesystems were ext2 instead of ReiserFS.
That may have something to do with the problem.
Are all you filesystems reiserfs?
All filesystems are reiserfs:
/dev/hde2 on / type reiserfs (rw)
/dev/hde1 on /boot type reiserfs (rw,notail)
/dev/hde4 on /usr type reiserfs (rw)
/dev/hdg2 on /fold/various type reiserfs (rw)
/dev/hdg3 on /fold/mp3s type reiserfs (rw)
Any ideas on this Jeremy?
Because we don't look at reiserfs partitions when looking for a partition to put
a swap file on.
Should be fixed in CVS
