Description Matthew Connor 2002-11-20 16:39:51 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1)

Description of problem:
After configuring partitions for installation, clicking "Next" hangs the 
installer and returns the error: "Checking the size of a partition which hasn't 
been allocated yet"

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


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Begin RedHat 8.0 Setup from the CD
2. Configure some free space to be the /, /boot, and swap space partitions
3. Click "Next"
	

Actual Results:  THe installer crashed with the error message: "Checking the 
size of a partition which hasn't been allocated yet" and gave me the option to 
save the dump to a floppy.

Expected Results:  The installer should have assigned the partitions I selected 
and began the installation.

Additional info:

The installation is taking place on a Sony Vaio laptop with one physical hard 
drive with two partitions. The first partition has Windows XP on it. I was 
attempting to delete the second partition and install RedHat 8.0 on it.

I have done numerous installs of this nature and have not seen this issue.
Unfortunately I can't fix this issue since I cannot reproduce it.
