Description Magno Weege 2003-05-07 12:56:51 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; WinNT4.0; en-US; rv:1.0.2) Gecko/20030208

Description of problem:
Computer: Compaq Evo D300, Pentium 1.8 Gh, 40 GB HD, TNT2 32 MB Video Card.
I have partition my HD for 4 Operation System, like this:

hda1 - Windows XP
hda2 - OpenBSD
hda3 - FreeBSD
hda4 - Extend
   hda5 - /
   hda6 - swap
   hda7 - home

I have installed the other 3 S.O. (Windows, OpenBSD, FreeBSD) and when I will
install the RedHat 9.0 I have a Crash!!

DiskDruid see the others all partition correct, like windows, Open and Free! and
I do the partitions for redhat successfull. I add the OpenBSD and FreeBSD on
boot manager successfull, like this:

* RedHat
  OpenBSD hda2
  FreeBSD hda3
  Windows hda1

Everthing it's ok, until now!
I select the packages (some packages!) and when the RedHat will start the
installation I see the follow message:

"Error informing the kernel about modifications to partition /dev/hda2 - Device
or resource busy. This means linux won't know about any changes you made to
/dev/hda2 until you reboot - so you shouldn't mount it in any way before rebooting."


When I press ok, I see the same message to hda3 and I see the message that it's
a bug and ask me if I want save the bug on a disket, but when I try the system
reboot! :-(

I try to do everthing (afhhh!)
 - Don't put the OpenBSD and FreeBSD on the boot loader! (after diskdruid).
 - Install minimun packages!
 - do more partitions for redhat (desesperate now!!)
 - and other crazy things...
 - so... I give up... :-(

I don't no if it's a bug, but the redhat say yes! so I reported!!
And sory for my bad english... :-(

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use the Fdisk and make 4 partitions and put the label for each one!
2. Install windows XP
3. Install OpenBSD 3.2
4. Install FreeBSD 5
5. Install RedHat 9.0

Additional info: The actual boot is made for FreeBSD (without redhat, offcourse!)!

Does this still happen with newer releases?
