Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 58198
Install fails if user has to shrink number of packages installed
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:38:57 EDT
Description of Problem:
Choose too many packages to install and anaconda catches this during the
"preparing to install" phase. If you go back to correct the problem by choosing
fewer files then when the install is done the reboot will fail because no disks
will be mounted I believe.
fstab will end up with entries like:
LABEL=/1 / ext3 defaults 1 1
LABEL=/boot1 /boot ext3 defaults 1 2
It seems to me that some procedure is being repeated and it shouldn't
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. choose a larger package base than what will fit on your drive
2. after it complains that it won't fit go back and reduce the number of packages
3. install will finish (making boot floppy will fail, says it kind find root
drive in fstab) and after reboot system will not come up.
devices get appended a 1 after there names.
To recognise the difference between disks that existed before the install and
disks that were created during the install. These disks shouldn't have a 1
appended to them
Deferring to future release.
