Description James Manning 2002-06-21 20:05:07 UTC
traceback a'coming

IMHO, it looks like the restrictions on physical and logical volume names should
be a *lot* tighter - it's letting me put in \ and ! and ? and lots of other
things I can imagine will be problems, especially when I see the device that
grub lists as the boot target including those characters

Comment 2 James Manning 2002-06-21 20:35:51 UTC
when i allowed the default names for everything, the install worked fine (well,
it's working fine, it's actually installing packages now) so I'd have to imagine
this boils down to not being restrictive enough on the characters allowed in
physical and logical volumes

Comment 3 Michael Fulbright 2002-08-01 04:08:37 UTC
Fixed.  Only allowing letters, digits, '.' or '_'.

Comment 4 Jay Turner 2002-09-05 13:35:14 UTC
Looks like the restrictions are in place for re0904.1.
