Description Alexandre Oliva 2003-02-20 04:37:55 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030206

Description of problem:
If there are two lines in the kickstart file that specify the same mount point, say:

part /boot --fstype ext3 --onpart hde1
part /boot --fstype ext3 --noformat --onpart hdg1

anaconda will display some error messages about the problem, saying it will
reboot, but it does not reboot, and disk druid does display the two partitions
with /boot as the mount point.  I didn't have the courage to proceed to an
install to check what would happen because my hdg1 is no longer suitable for a
/boot filesystem, but it was scary.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.create a kickstart file with the two entries above, for an interactive
kickstart install.  I had two entries for / too, under the same conditions. the installer in kickstart mode (interactive)
3.proceed to the disk druid screen

Actual Results:  It says it will reboot, but it doesn't, and then you get two
partitions mounting /boot

Expected Results:  It should have rebooted, and/or cleared one of them, or at
least refused to proceed from disk druid (hmm...  I'm not entirely sure I have
verified that it didn't)

Helps to actually exit after showing the error message.... fixed in CVS
