Description Mike Cross 2006-01-07 04:51:45 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1; .NET CLR 1.0.3705; .NET CLR 1.1.4322)

Description of problem:
Workstation graphical install on compaq presario 5184 with default package selection.  It told me to insert a floppy and create a bug report on anaconda.

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

How reproducible:
Couldn't Reproduce

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start with FAT32 partition on hard drive
2. Insert FC4 CD and boot
3. Tell install to remove all partitions on selected hard drive and use its own auto-partition
4. use default package selection
5. press "Next" to install

Actual Results:  1. Warning about not being able to write to /dev/hda2
2. Then a sort of hda2 "panic" screen with a lot of things I don't understand
3. Said I should file a bugzilla report on anaconda
4. asked for a floppy disk and did a dump
5. press OK to reboot

Expected Results:  Should have formatted and partitioned the hard drive

Additional info:

The whole process worked the second time around.  Something with the WIN98SE FAT32 partition?

This is the dump anaconda created on the floppy disk.
