Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 72075
auto partition changes fail
Last modified: 2008-01-17 12:49:41 EST
Description of Problem:
I used to be able to change my auto-partition wizard details in 7.3. If I try to
do so in Limbo, the resulting Linux load cannot find the root partition and
fails to boot with a PANIC error, details of which I apologize for not saving.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How Reproducible: Every time I have tried, thus far
Steps to Reproduce:
1. start install, choose DELETE ALL LINUX PARTITIONS and then choose the Auto
Partition Wizard (or, I THINK, manual partition does the same)
2. change ANY default option
3. when time to reboot and start Linux, it cannot find root partition and fails
with a PANIC message whose details I failed to record.
Actual Results: cannot boot to Linux (limbo Again!)
Could you please try the 'null' beta release which just came out this week?
I can try 'null' beta release, I guess, but it takes 9-18 hours to download, no
matter WHAT mirror site I go to, even with 10mbs (supposed) access.
Well perhaps you could try the final 8.0 release now it is available.
