RH 7.1 and large partitions



Hi guys,

Hopefully somebody will be able to point out the obvious step I've missed
here, or the well-known bug I have failed to find!

I have a custom Kickstart CD that I built and have successfully used for a
number of months now. Apart from a recent change to remove the
kernel-enterprise package (RH didn't update this after RHSA-2002-205, but
that's a seperate story I guess) the build has worked perfectly.

This afternoon I ran the build on a Compaq server with 53GB of RAID storage,
and everything appeared to go OK during the build.

However, when I actually booted up the machine, only about 30GB of disk space
had actually been used - there was another 20GB that had simply not been
allocated by the install scripts.

The relevant section of the ks.cfg is as follows:

[...]
zerombr yes
clearpart --all
part /boot --size 8    --maxsize 35   --grow
part swap  --size 128  --maxsize 256  --grow
part /     --size 100  --maxsize 1024 --grow
part /usr  --size 512                 --grow
part /tmp  --size 100  --maxsize 512  --grow
part /var  --size 128  --maxsize 512  --grow
lilo --location mbr
[...]

and when the machine was built, I got:
# fdisk -l /dev/ida/c0d0

Disk /dev/ida/c0d0: 255 heads, 32 sectors, 13071 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 8160 * 512 bytes

         Device Boot    Start       End    Blocks   Id  System
/dev/ida/c0d0p1   *         1         9     36704   83  Linux
/dev/ida/c0d0p2            10     13071  53292960    5  Extended
/dev/ida/c0d0p5            10      6755  27523664   83  Linux
/dev/ida/c0d0p6          6756      6820    265184   82  Linux swap
/dev/ida/c0d0p7          6821      6949    526304   83  Linux
/dev/ida/c0d0p8          6950      7078    526304   83  Linux
/dev/ida/c0d0p9          7079      7336   1052624   83  Linux

(notice the discrepancy in size between the entire disk and the allocated
space!!)

Thanks for any tips or pointers you may think of..

Regards,

Jonathan
