Description Chris Dos 2002-08-22 17:41:49 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.1b) Gecko/20020718

Description of problem:
I can't install RedHat 7.3 on a RAID drive that is larger than 1 terabtye. 
Actually, it's 1.1 terabytes in size.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select Custom Install
2. Manually Parition with disk Druid
3. It crashes

Actual Results:  It crashes

Expected Results:  It should allow the creation of the partions and selecting
the partions for which mounts and continuing further further installation.

Additional info:

Choosing fdisk to create the partitions first and then going on to disk druid
causes the same problem.

I'll try to attach the anacondadumpt results to this bug.

Comment 3 Michael Fulbright 2002-08-22 20:03:11 UTC
This should be fixed in our current beta release.  I'd be curious if it works
for you.

Comment 4 Chris Dos 2002-08-30 17:04:59 UTC
This will be a production machine.  Do you feel fairly confident that the beta
will be stable?  Does the beta contain the 2.4.19 kernel?

Comment 5 Michael Fulbright 2002-10-02 20:17:21 UTC
Red Hat Linux 8.0 is now out so you can try that instead of a beta.

Comment 6 Michael Fulbright 2002-10-24 18:23:24 UTC
Closing due to inactivity. Please reopen if you have any new information to add
to this report.
