Description Richard Henderson 2003-04-03 22:24:59 UTC
If you choose to search for bad blocks on a particion, and bad blocks are
found, we no longer pass the list of bad blocks to mkfs as we used to do.
Instead the installer offers to let me reboot.  Not Friendly.

Comment 1 Michael Fulbright 2003-04-04 19:33:24 UTC
We have never passed the list of badblocks to mkfs, which is why I'm removing
badblocks checking completely in future releases. This is not seen as an
interesting feature to sustain.
