Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 6146
cannot place root partion on /dev/hdc

when installing, the partitioning tool refuses to put the /
partition on /dev/hdc
This issue has been forwarded to a developer for further action.
... or on /dev/hdd
The partitioning part of the installer basically sux.
I do NOT need a /boot partition, and I would like to specify that my swap
partition shoul be /dev/hdc1, at the start of the disk, for performance reasons.
Being forced to create a /boot partition and a swap partition is WRONG!
Tell the installer to stop treating me like an idiot!
When trying to squeeze RH6.1 on a 103MB disk, I don't want more than one
Please only give a warning if the partitions aren't what you want them to be -
not a fatal error.
Where's the fdisk option?
Where's the "Force / to be /dev/hdc1, not hdc5 or something else" option?
Expert mode presented the option to use manual fdisk, and enables you to work
around all of these behaviors. The next release lets the user use fdisk in
normal mode (not restricting it to expert).
You're right that we were overly-protective in Cartman.
