Re: Kickstart Partitioning Errors



It sounds like anaconda is not seeing your hard drive at all (which to my recollection happens with VMWare's SCSI drivers in some versions).

You can get more info by going to the shell after getting the error (Alt-F2) and running the list-harddrives command.

I've set up a fairly default install of Spacewalk 0.5 and set up a

that I've missed that someone could chime in on.

When I PXE boot with an IDE VM in VMware Workstation, I get the error:
	"An error occurred trying to format myvg/rootvol.  This problem
is serious, and the install cannot continue."

When I PXE boot with a SCSI VM in VMware Workstation, I get the error:
	"Could not allocate requested partitions: Partitioning failed:
Could not allocate partitions as primary partitions. Not enough space
left to create partition for /boot."

Here is the partitioning details from Spacewalk > Systems > Kickstart >
Profiles > CentOS-5-2. I'm not sure where this is stored in file.

	partition /boot --fstype=ext3 --size=200
	partition swap --size=1000   --maxsize=2000
	partition pv.01 --size=1000 --grow

	volgroup myvg pv.01

	logvol / --vgname=myvg --name=rootvol --size=1000 --grow
