Description David White 2003-03-01 01:06:06 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030206

Description of problem:
Tried to install RC6 onto an 80GB drive.  (60GB Windows XP, 11GB Mandrake Linux,
8GB BeOS) Told installer to delete linux partition and auto partition, then
confirm the results.  Auto partition unable to come up with something usable.
Manually allocating 1GB of SWAP and defaulting the rest to / worked fine. 
(Would have preferred a mix of / and /home, but this was unable to satisfy the
installer too.)

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. 80GB drive, with 60GB Windows XP and BeOS installed
2. Tell installer to delete Linux partition and confirm partitions

There were only 2 slots to delete and we needed to add 3 partitions (/boot, /,
and swap space).
