Description Gene Czarcinski 2002-04-10 15:27:19 EDT
doc for 7.3

Under Kickstart Options, part --size says that --size must be specified even for
an existing partition.

I installed 7.2.93 into existing partitions but the generated anaconda-ks.cfg
file did NOT have --size specified on the part statements (yes, they were
commented out but even so).

Can you attach the kickstart file?

Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2002-04-10 18:13:47 EDT
--size shouldn't be needed with --onpart
Comment 4 Gene Czarcinski 2002-04-10 18:30:24 EDT
too bad in a way ... now I will bugzilla ksconfig since it requires size also.
Comment 5 Tammy Fox 2002-04-10 22:16:13 EDT
IIRC, this statement was added to the docs because anaconda wouldn't parse
correctly without --size with --onpart. Since katzj fixed this limitation,
I have removed it from the docs. It will appear correct in the next release.

Thanks for your report.
