Description Jeff Bearer 2011-05-25 17:59:12 EDT
Description of problem:

I have a kickstart where in the %pre I use parted to partition the disk and create the part commands in an include file for kickstart.  when the kickstart gets to enablefilesystems it throws an exception.

If I run the same kickstart in Fedora 14 it works.

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

Fedora 15

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run some parted commands in the pre
2. create the part for the kickstart in /tmp
3. include the created file into the kickstart
Actual results:

From anaconda.log

Expected results:

Anaconda to format the partitions specified.

Additional info:

Relevant components from the kickstart.
