Description Karsten Wade 2003-02-20 23:41:10 UTC
Description of problem:

If you make more than one entry in the partition tab of redhat-config-kickstart,
the application will not let you delete any of the entries.

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


How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to the partition tab/section, with defaults of "clear MBR", "remove all
existing partitions" and "initialize the disk label" 
2. Add more than one partition of any type.
3. Select a partition, causing the Delete button to become active, and try to
delete the partition.      

Actual results:
Added and selected partitions do not delete.

Expected results:
Any selected partition should be able to be deleted

Additional info:
Of course, one can just edit the final ks.cfg file, but I don't think that was
the point of the partitioning section. :)

Did you open an exising kickstart file or were you creating one from scratch?

Comment 2 Karsten Wade 2003-02-21 20:43:37 UTC
I was creating a new one from scratch.

I don't see an obvious way to work with an existing one.  Is there a file open
dialog somewhere?  I also tried 'redhat-config-kickstart ks.cfg' from the
command line, which didn't open the kickstart file.

Comment 3 Brent Fox 2003-02-22 00:21:21 UTC
No, but there is in Phoebe.  For a moment I thought you were running the beta.

Comment 4 Brent Fox 2003-02-24 22:41:12 UTC
Should be fixed in redhat-config-kickstart-2.3.6-4

Comment 5 Brent Fox 2003-05-25 14:30:26 UTC
There is a stack of 64 bugs that have been in Modified state for a long period
of time.  I am closing these as Rawhide now.  If you find that the issue is not
fixed, please reopen this report.
