anaconda 7.3 too sensible
Last modified: 2008-03-06 14:57:03 EST
Description of Problem:
I tried to install 7.3 it on a new partition on my PC.
Anaconda signals a partition
table problem and refuses to go on , while I can install
7.1, Mandrake 8.2, Suse 8.0, and Debian 3.0
on that partition, without any trouble.
Is there a big gap between 7.1 and 7.3 within the installation
scripts that make it too sensible ?
My workaround (only for me) would be to build my own ISO iamge,
with a former verison of anaconda, and the 7.3 packages...

We are now using the parted partitioning library that has more tests to see if a
partitioning scheme is intact.
If you could send us a listing of the partitions on your system we might be able
to see if there is a problem with parted.
