Description Andrew Parker 2002-07-06 20:07:08 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.9) Gecko/20020408

Description of problem:
Under some circumstances, creating a partition that 'Fills all unused space on
disk' produces an error message 'You must specify a size for this partition'. 
Also, the error message does not go away when you click ok.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  ksconfig
2.  Click partition information on left hand side
3.  Add /boot partition with 75M
4.  Add swap with 512M
5.  Add / with fill all unused space on disk

Actual Results:  One of two things happen here:  I either get a dialog box with
'You must specify a size for the partition' (which does not go away when you
click OK).  Sometimes I get a stack dump:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/ksconfig/ksconfig_gui.py", line 228, in on_activate_save_options
    list = self.getAllData()
  File "/usr/share/ksconfig/ksconfig_gui.py", line 205, in getAllData
    list = list + self.partition_class.getData()
  File "/usr/share/ksconfig/partition.py", line 136, in getData
    part_object = self.part_store.get_value(iter, 4)
TypeError: iter must be a GtkTreeIter

Expected Results:  Should not get either the dialog box or the stack dump

This should be fixed in version 2.3.1-1. Marking as dup of bug with same traceback.
