Description Enrico Scholz 2005-06-18 10:00:42 UTC
Description of problem:

When having 

| part / --fstype ext3 --onpart hda2 --noformat

and creating this partition in %pre without assigning a label, anaconda will set
the '/' and add 'LABEL=/' entries to /etc/fstab but not the correct '/dev/hda2'.

This is bad as I do not want to add such labels; they require an initrd.img
which I do not need.

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


Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2005-06-20 17:45:16 UTC
The default setup is with labels.  Our default _kernel_ requires an initrd, so
that's hardly the argument to use.
