Description Owen Taylor 2003-03-06 18:37:42 EST
[ With the latest GinGin tree ]

I don't have an exact sequence to reproduce this, but 
it more or less went like:

 - Select automatic partioning
 - Watch it make a 36 meg /  on /hda2
 - Hit Next
 - Change my mind, hit back
 - Split 36 megs into a 20 meg /home on /hda2 and
   a 16 meg / on /hda3
 - Hit next, continue with install

At the end of the install, I ended up with:

 /hda2 formatted, label /home
 /hda3 not formatted
And the install on /hda2. (So no / label at all,
system didn't boot, time to reinstall)

Just curious, didnt you get a warning that 36M is not enough for '/'?
Comment 2 Owen Taylor 2003-03-07 14:32:54 EST
Please add in the correct power of 1024 ... I meant (perhaps obviously)
gig not mem.
Comment 3 Michael Fulbright 2003-03-12 12:30:34 EST
Thanks for the clarification.
Comment 4 Michael Fulbright 2003-03-13 16:07:23 EST
I tried this on two machines and couldn't hit it. Can you reproduce it on
demand? I'd like to track down the problem you saw if possible.
Comment 5 Owen Taylor 2003-03-13 17:09:13 EST
Sorry, unfortunately, the machine I was testing on is the machine I'm
typing on now, and not really up for reinstall. I didn't try to try 
to repeat the problem.

All I can suggest about reproduction is that I may have gone
more than one screen forward.... I didn't find the problem 
until the machine finished installing an hour or so later, so 
it was a bit vague at that point what I actually did.
(But I don't think it was anything _too_ weird.)

Feel feel to close if you feel that nothing useful can be done 
without more information.

It seems unlikely I'm going to be able to address this w/o a reproducible test
case :(.
