Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2002-03-13 19:37:38 UTC
Is this with Hampton beta 1 or beta 2?  Unless it's with beta 2 or reproduced
with beta 2, this is extremely low priority right now.

Comment 2 Issue Tracker 2002-03-15 20:18:03 UTC
It is on both beta1 and beta2.

Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2002-03-18 19:46:16 UTC
If you look at tty4 when its formatting, has the partition table been reread?
