Description Paul Wouters 2003-04-06 15:49:27 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.2.7 (X11; Linux i686; U;) Gecko/20030131 Description of problem: When installing with two disks with redhat installs on the, and performing a "fresh install" (no upgrade) on hda using autopartition, hdb shows up with the current partitions on it, though without mountpoints. This is confusing since it seems to suggest these will be installed/created as well. When I continued, it actually warned that hdb3 (a swap partition) is going to get destroyed. It then also (I believe) mkswap'ed it. I think disks that have been explicitely excluded should not show up in any partitioning selection later on, and should also not be touched by mkswap. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Didn't try Steps to Reproduce: 1.put two disk with redhat isntallations in a machine 2. install redhat on disk 1 Additional info:

This is not limited to happening on /dev/hda, I did custom on a fresh install and disk druid selected two partitions on my /dev/hdc as being swap...one of them was an old 20 GB Ext2 partition. But it gets worse, I edited those partions and selected the Do Not Touch This Partition option or whatever and Disk Druid unchecked them as partions to be formatted. I proceeded to setup my partition configuration on /dev/hdb, but when it came time to install the packages I got an error about how it could not modify /dev/hdc5 (it tried to mkswap my two other partions on /dev/hdc even though I removed those from Disk Druid (I thought). It then told me to click OK and reboot... this is not how it is suppost to be...I cannot install RH9 atm.

Oh i forgot to mention I was installing on /dev/hdb and it still tried to create swap partions on /dev/hdc just to clear up my merky description.
