Description Martins Gulbis 2003-04-18 17:31:35 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; .NET CLR 
1.0.3705; .NET CLR 1.1.4322)

Description of problem:
While trying to install, I received messages saying that \boot may not be ablt 
to work and I should create boot disks.  One of the options bneath the message 
was to modify the partition.  After getting this message 2 or 3 times, install 
crashed instructing me to report a bug against anaconda.  I also have the 
requested dump on floppy, hopefully later in this form it will ask for it

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot install 
2. auto partition
3. make bigggest partintion smaller by about 10MB
4. Get message warning that /boot might have problems
5. Press modify partition button

Actual Results:  Step 4 & 5 repeated once or twice and then the crash

Expected Results:  Partition should have been modified to work (I guess, I am 
new to Linux) and Linux would be installed

Additional info:

Just moved a 20GB partion from first disk to a 40GB disk, so 20GB free on boot

Since the file ends in txt I guess that is what it is, it was generated by
following instruction on screen
