Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 8310
Problem with partitioning harddrives (only alpha-systems?)
Last modified: 2015-01-07 18:40:32 EST
On RedHat 6.1 Installer occures the following Problem:
While partitioning the harddrives, the installer/partitioner write
one partition to primary and all others partitions to extended partition.
The Problem is: The biggest partition (like /usr or /opt) is every time
at the primary partition.
Smaller partitions (like /) will be moved to the extended partitions
On an alpha-system is the bootloader Milo, Milo can NOT work with extended
partitions. The root-filesystem must be on an primary partition.
But the root-filesystem have only 150 to 300 MB.
If I want to write partitiontables, I have no chance, to put the
root-filesystem to /dev/hda1 because all bigger partitions want to have
So there is /usr or /opt or any other big filesystems every time
on the only primary partition.
Issue is resolved in the latest installer (available in beta)
