Description of problem:
When building a kickstart script, at the partition information screen, I am
unable to create a partition with a fixed size if I created a swap (recommended
size on) first.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.create a swap partition and check "Use recommended size"
2.Try to create a /var partition of a fixed size.
Actual Results: The "Size (MB)" field is ghosted and the recommended checkmark
is still marked and ghosted.
Expected Results: "Size (MB)" field should be changeable, and the recommended
checkmark should defauly to False, and should be changeable.
Yup, it's a bug. A workaround is to click the "Fill all unused space on disk"
option, and then click "Fixed size" again. That should re-enable the "Size"
entry widget. I'm working on a patch for this at the moment.
Fix committed to cvs. redhat-config-kickstart-2.3.3-4 should fix the problem
and will appear in Rawhide soon. Thanks for your report.
