Description Ray Parish 2002-04-04 13:49:20 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1)

Description of problem:
My ks.cfg file does not have part information, thus making the installer bring 
up the partitioning window. When selecting autopartition, and ks.cfg has 
clearpart --all --initlabel, the next screen shows no partitions created with 
no mount points. If I leave out the clearpart --all --initlabel, I get 
partitions, but with no mount points. (TEXT mode, not gui)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use my ks.cfg
2. select autopartition
3. Whala

Actual Results:  I get partitions with no mount points, or I get no partitions 
at all.

Expected Results:  Autopartitioning to work, and have partitions and mount

There is no concept of autopartitioning in kickstart;  autopartitioning requires
an installclass, which kickstart is all on its own.  So you either have to
specify your own partitioning information or enter it manually.
