What is your partition layout?
Comment 2 Shawn Walker 2002-10-03 15:25:36 EDT
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.
Comment 3 Michael Fulbright 2002-10-24 14:03:07 EDT
So clicking on partitions of type xfs was causing the issue?
Comment 4 Shawn Walker 2002-10-24 18:42:10 EDT
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.
Comment 5 Michael Fulbright 2002-10-30 17:48:52 EST
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.
Comment 7 Shawn Walker 2002-12-02 11:11:56 EST
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.
