Description of problem:
I have one partition in ext2 format which I selected for disk druid to convert
to ext3. Selection is possible but when the partition (/home if this makes a
difference) is actually access the installer fails and says that mounting isn't
possible (don't have the exact words).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.have a system with an ext2 partition /home
2.run the text installer
3.use disk druid for partioning and select the ext2 partition to be upgraded to ext3
Actual Results: message from anaconda that mounting /home failed
Expected Results: /home should have been converted and no anaconda message
There is another strange thing wrt to disk druid. When editing a partition (it
is a used partition) the mount point field at the top says "not applicable" or
so. When editing the disk option and returning to the inital window the mount
point field is editable. This seems very wrong. It should have been editable
Confirmed firstname.lastname@example.org note under "Additional Info" about the TUI disk
druid screen; it won't let you enter the ext3 mount point. To work around this,
I had to set the type to ext2, enter the mount point, and then set it back to ext3.
Still seeing this problem with the Skipjack tree.
Hrmm... I'm not seeing this on current trees. Might be due to the parted
probing problem that was present in Skipjack, though. If you run the parted
from Skipjack on the disk, does it detect a filesystem type?
Closing due to inactivity please reopen if you have additional problems.
