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
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. 80GB drive, with 60GB Windows XP and BeOS installed
2. Tell installer to delete Linux partition and confirm partitions
3. Attempt to auto allocate
Actual Results: Unable to install until manually partitioned
Expected Results: Auto allocation of (new) free space
Created attachment 90433 [details]
Output of sfdisk -d
There were only 2 slots to delete and we needed to add 3 partitions (/boot, /,
and swap space).
