Description of problem:
Clicking on graphical partition summary in disk druid causes setup to stop
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start installation
2. Use disk druid partitioning step
3. Click on graphical summary of partitions up above a few times
What is your partition layout?
The first time, there were swap, boot (xfs), root(xfs), and home (xfs)
partitions. The second time it happened there were no partitions at all. This
was on /dev/hdb. An IDE drive.
So clicking on partitions of type xfs was causing the issue?
I would think that, except the second time we booted the system, it had no
partitions and clicking in that area up above still caused the problem. So I'm
unfortunately not too sure about this :( If you need me too, I think I can boot
the setup disk on another machine around here that still has XFS partitions and
see if I can reproduce this.
What would help would be if you could give me the partition layout of all drives
so I could try to setup something similar here.
Closing due to inactivity, please reopen if you have additional information to add.
That's fine. I have been unable to reproduce this on other systems. For some
reason it only happened on that a specific machine and with the old partition
setup it used to have. But now that it has RH8.0, and it's an actively used
desktop. It's not possible to resetup the old partitions. Thanks.
